BILL GRANTING FENCING TAX EXEMPTION BECOMES LAW

     Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill last week granting a sales tax exemption on the sale of fencing materials used to reconstruct agricultural fences damaged or destroyed by wildfires in 2016 and 2017. The new law, supported by KLA, exempts purchases made in 2017 and 2018.
     Individuals who have purchased fencing materials for this purpose and paid sales tax may apply for a refund. To qualify for the exemption at the time of sale, buyers will need to provide retailers a copy of an exemption certificate from the Kansas Department of Revenue. Information regarding the refund application and exemption certificate is available at
www.ksrevenue.org/wildfires.
