Time to Renew Your Ag/Timber Exemption

December 10, 2015

As a farmer myself, working land that's been in my family for generations, I know that agriculture is a tough and time-consuming business — and one that doesn't always leave you with a lot of time to think about paperwork.

That's why I want to remind you about an important upcoming deadline.

Under state law, agricultural and timber producers can claim sales tax exemptions for some items they use to produce products for sale. My office issues registration numbers for these exemptions. If you're in farming, ranching or timber, it's time to renew your registration with us.

All ag/timber registration numbers are expiring on Dec. 31, 2015, regardless of when they were issued. If you claim this important exemption, and you haven't already renewed your registration, you need to do so now if you want to keep it.

To continue claiming the exemption, you can renew with us by phone, online or by mail. You can get detailed information on renewals through our website or by calling toll-free 1-844-AG RENEW (1-844-247-3639).

Don't miss out!

As always, let us know how we're doing via our customer service website, Twitter or Facebook. If you'd like to continue receiving "From the Desk of" emails, add your email address to the list.

Thank you for all you do for Texas, and God bless,

Glenn Hegar
