If you work in manufacturing, there are many sales tax exemptions, incentives, and special rules to be aware of.
Most states provide some kind of sales tax exemption to manufacturers, typically on machinery, equipment, or other businesses inputs. However, each state has its own definition of what constitutes manufacturing and there may be non-traditional processes that qualify for an exemption – some of which may surprise you.
Knowing how the states that you operate in define manufacturing terms for exemption purposes could potentially open your company up to tremendous savings. There are gems to be found!
This webinar will teach you the key components and terms to look for in each state’s manufacturing definition so you can determine if you qualify for certain cost-saving exemptions. You’ll also learn about sales tax implications for manufacturing issues like inventory withdrawal and in-process transportation as well as important legislative updates and law changes you need to know as a manufacturer.

As a sales tax pro in the manufacturing industry, one of the most important aspects of your job is digging into each state’s definition of manufacturing so you understand how your processes are taxed and you are fully aware of any sales tax exemptions available to your company.
The way your manufacturing processes are set up, the inputs you use, how equipment is used in production, and what you sell can impact whether you can claim a sales tax exemption.
Trying to figure out what is considered “manufacturing” in the states where you do business may seem frustrating since each state definition is different, but in fact, it provides a unique opportunity for you to unearth sales tax exemptions that your company may be missing out on.
Some states include much more than just the traditional manufacturing process within their exemption. For example, in Texas, anything you do that makes a chemical or physical change in the product being manufactured may qualify for an exemption. That means something like an icemaker in a restaurant could qualify!
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 stay sales tax compliant and take full advantage of available sales tax exemptions. Diane will also share the latest state news updates, law changes, and incentive programs that affect manufacturers.
During the live Q&A portion of the webinar, you can get answers to your specific sales tax questions directly from Diane.
