Fla. Growers Get Tax ExemptionSource: Various

A recently enacted state law in Florida exempts electricity used for agricultural production, including floriculture and horticulture, from the state’s sales tax. The new law is designed to help growers keep their production costs down.

Under the new law, which took effect July 1, 2006, growers requesting the tax exemption must separately meter the electricity they use in their production operations from electricity used for other purposes.

To qualify for the exemption, growers must provide their utility company with an exemption certificate stating the electricity will be used directly and exclusively for the production/processing of agricultural products.
