There are many sales tax exemptions and incentives available to manufacturers.  If you work in the manufacturing industry, you need to know about the potential cost savings that are available to your company. This webinar will teach you about the exemptions – both common and not so common – that may be available to you at each step of the manufacturing process.

You are likely aware of sales tax exemptions for manufacturing machinery and equipment.

The course is also designed for general practitioners who have clients in the manufacturing industry.
