Effective July 1, 2017, Utah has enacted a sales and use tax exemption on purchases or leases of certain machinery, equipment, and repair or replacement parts by qualifying automobile manufacturing facilities located in the state. The machinery, equipment or repair or replacement parts must be used to manufacture an item sold as tangible personal property. 

 

Effective July 1, 2017, a sales and use tax exemption has been enacted for purchases or leases of equipment or repair or replacement parts with an economic life of less than three years by industrial gas manufacturing facilities located in Utah.
