Agricultural Exemption Holders Must Verify Information To Renew

November 6, 2023

The Tennessee Department of Revenue is reminding agricultural exemption holders they must verify their exemption with the department by Dec. 31, 2023, to keep buying certain agricultural items tax-free.

Agricultural certificates of exemption allow holders to buy certain agricultural items used primarily in agricultural operations, such as fertilizer and farming equipment, without paying sales tax. These exemptions expire every fourth year, and certificates for the current period expire Dec. 31, 2023.

Exemption card holders can renew their cards online by following directions on the department’s website or by contacting the department at 615-253-0600 or revenue.support@tn.gov. Exemption holders should have also received a letter in the mail with instructions on how to renew their cards.
