There are many sales tax exemptions and incentives available to manufacturers. If you work in the manufacturing industry, you need to know about the potentially huge cost savings that are available to your company.

You are likely aware of sales tax exemptions for manufacturing machinery and equipment. But are you aware that different states have different definitions for “machinery” and “equipment”? Knowing how the states that you operate in define manufacturing terms for exemption purposes could potentially open your company up to tremendous savings.

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.

Who should attend? This webinar is intended for sales tax, financial, and operations personnel in the manufacturing industry—including tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing and credit. The course is also designed for general practitioners who have clients in the manufacturing industry.

Additional Details About the Webinar

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.
