WUD co-sponsors seminars in Dec. on tax exemptions for agriculture

WUD along with several county Farm Bureaus, the California Automotive Wholesalers Association and member of the Board of Equalization, George Runner, will host six seminars from Dec. 1 – Dec. 5 on valuable tax incentives available to California producers.

In 2004, WUD was one of the leading trade organizations that supported legislation to exempt farmers from applicable state sales tax on certain products to be used in the raising of animals (dairy, cattle and poultry, including most construction materials used in dairy barns); gas used for the production of product, as well as use as a heating source for farm residences; tractors and tractor implements, and parts used to repair tractors and tractor implements. This legislation has provided significant monetary relief to California farmers, in particular to the dairy industry.

Be sure to attend one of the following seminars to gather vital information related to these valuable tax exemptions. Please RSVP to the numbers provided.
