I'm really interested in finding out more about your tax exemption status. When you get a chance can I get some more info on that? I would love to be able to buy feed with no tax and I'm assuming there are some more wright offs I could use as well...
Gahhhh... Now I can't find that page. I saved the file as a PDF but I can't load it right now. Basically the law stipulated that you don't have to pay tax on feed and such supplies because of intent to resell. So if you bought 100 chicks from a hatchery with the intent to resell them you wouldn't need to pay tax on them BUT its with the clause that you charge tax when you sell your stock. And since feed goes to maintain that stock you don't pay tax on that either.
This is the long form, http://www.springsgov.com/units/salestax/Sales Tax Ordinance/Sales Tax ordinance CURRENT.pdf
Page twenty has the first snippet I found under trees and seeds... There is another booklet like this just for livestock specifically though.
