Sales & Use Tax Exemptions
Sales tax is paid on most goods and services and use tax is collected on the consumption, use, or storage of goods when sales tax is not paid. There are a few exceptions, purchased or leased machinery, equipment, replacement parts that are used for manufacturing or fabrication and that have a useful life over six months are exempt from sales and use tax. Manufacturers that fall within this category have an opportunity to claim exemptions not only in the current year but in prior years as well.
Energy & Utility Tax Exemptions
In addition to the sales and use tax exemption for manufacturers, there is an exemption that can be used on taxes paid on electricity, fuel, and other utilities that are necessary and required in the manufacturing process. These required processes can range from electricity used to power manufacturing equipment and machines to the fuel used during melting and dehumidification processes.
