Small business utility bills incorrect

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- A local utility analyst says 80% of commercial businesses are not billed correctly.

Brandon Pearson started a utility analysis business in Cedar Falls last month.

He is offering free audits and only charges a percentage of the refund, if there is a mistake in billing. However, every business that he has done an audit for has received a refund.

"We an analyst that's actually going to look at the utiltiy bill and... actually go through the physical inventory of the equipment that you use and what not and determine if there is a refund due," Pearson said.

The billing mistakes are commonly found through misappropriation of fees or taxes.

The average small business Pearson helps, receives a $3-4,000

refund from the state.

Pearson has also expanded to residential homes.  Pearson can be reached at (319) 404-3480.
