Qualifying Farmer
Sales Tax Exemption

Early July, the North Carolina Department of Revenue made a few changes regarding Qualifying Farmers and sales and use tax exemption of purchases used for farming purposes.  Basically, the new threshold to be a Qualified Farmer for the Ag Use Exemption from sales tax on farm items is a gross income of $10,000 or more and farmers will need to reapply for a new sales tax number from the Department of Revenue before October 31, 2014.  Supporting documentation must be submitted along with the completed E595QF (for Qualifying Farmers) or E595CF (for Conditional Farmers).  Please refer to the following link for FAQ and to see what supporting documents are needed.  An entire tax return is not necessary to submit as documentation - just what is shown in the FAQ.  For instance, a copy of the schedule F will be sufficient for sole proprietors. There are different sections of the tax return to submit for partnerships, LLC's, and corporations, so be sure to see what forms will apply to your farm business as income documentation. Please contact Kelsey Lichtenwalner at the Warren County Extension Office at (252) 257-3640, or e-mail at krlichte@ncsu.edu, if you have any questions.
