If you’re in the agricultural or timber business and claim agricultural exemption, it’s time to renew your Ag/Timber sales tax exemption number! State law, requires farmers and ranchers claiming agricultural exemptions to register with the Comptroller to obtain Ag/Timber Number. Farmers, ranchers and timber operators cannot purchase qualifying items tax free without a current Ag/Timber Number.
Renewal begins in October. To apply online, click here. Applicants who apply online will receive a registration number immediately. To receive an application by fax, call 1-800-531-1441.
