Ruling 89-75

Utility Exemption - Agricultural


The sales of electricity and gas used directly in agricultural production are exempt from sales and use tax. The sales of electricity and gas to florists with greenhouses and nursery operations are not subject to sales and use tax, because the greenhouse and nursery operations fall within the purview of the agricultural exemption. Florists who purchase cut flowers and prepare floral arrangements are subject to sales tax on their utility bills.
