Manufacturing and Production Sales Tax Exemptions: Not Just for Manufacturers
Leveraging Tax-Savings Opportunities as States Create and Expand Reach of Exemptions
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This webinar will brief tax professionals on the latest state improvements of manufacturing sales tax exemptions and how expansive terms of the tax break in many states can benefit your companies in unexpected ways.
- Current reach of manufacturing/production sales tax exemptions
- Available in nearly every state with a general sales tax
- Latest states to add or improve exemptions
- Jurisdictions that open up the exemption to industries not thought of as manufacturing
- Jurisdictions that expand the exemption to cover activities outside of direct production
The panel will zero in and help you understand how to take advantage of these potential tax savings and incentives, including:
- The states that have, or have expanded, manufacturer's exemptions, and which industries can capitalize and when.
- Which states are pushing the envelope on the types of industries that qualify for the sales tax break on "manufacturing" equipment and utilities.
- How to avoid sales tax on purchases related to activities that are ancillary to actually turning out a product.
