Did you know that the purchase of beekeeping equipment is exempt from sales tax? Well, the agricultural and timber exemptions are designed specifically to give beekeepers and other farm equipment an exemption from sales tax. It is like the back to school sales tax holiday weekend, except that it is year round and more or less permanent. To take advantage of this exemption follow the link, create an account, and simply apply for it. Then, the next time you order your equipment from Dadant, Mann Lake, or Texas Bee Supply just mention your exemption and you will begin to benefit from not having to pay sales taxes on these products. Don't worry, when you create the account, this has nothing to do with applying for a sales tax number and their are no other obligations or reporting requirements associated with this exemption. Honey is sales tax exempt, so most folks will never need to apply for and collect sales tax for any reason. Please follow the link!
