I am not a farmer, but, in the past, I have purchased items such as wood shavings and bales of hay to use in my small horse stable and rabbit cages. Will I be able to purchase these items without payment of sales tax?

No. Persons that do not meet one of the criteria cannot make tax-exempt purchases for agricultural purposes. Shavings and hay (usually wheat straw) used for bedding or as absorbent materials continue to be subject to tax. These items are not specified in the statute as exempt and do not fit within any of the categories of exempt items under the new law. Agri-sawdust is exempt from tax when purchased by qualified farmers or nursery operators.
