If you work in the manufacturing industry, one of the most important aspects of your job is being fully aware of the sales and use tax exemptions that are available to your company. This may seem simple: a state either does or doesn’t have a manufacturing exemption, right?
Well, not exactly.
Every state’s manufacturing exemption is unique, which means that what may be considered exempt in one state is not exempt in another. Trying to figure out what qualifies for a state’s manufacturing exemption may seem frustrating, but in fact, it provides a unique opportunity for you to unearth sales tax exemptions that your company may be missing out on.
By attending this webinar, you’ll learn which steps of the process can be included in the different states’ manufacturing exemptions and how the way you use equipment can determine if it is exempt or not. Additionally, some states include much more than just the traditional manufacturing process within their exemption. This webinar will highlight and uncover those additional items that can fall under the exemption.
Be the hero – this webinar will ensure that you aren’t missing out on manufacturing exemptions and major cost savings for your company.
In this 90-minute live webinar, sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute will teach you about the sales and use tax issues that manufacturers need to understand in order to take full advantage of available sales tax exemptions. You’ll also get updated on important recent developments across the states regarding sales tax for manufacturing.
And during the live Q&A portion of the webinar, you can get answers to your specific sales tax questions directly from Diane.
