As part of the NC 2014 Tax Reform Legislation, a person who has an agricultural exemption certificate number issued prior to July 1, 2014, and who meets the requirements for a qualifying farmer*, will need to apply for a new agricultural exemption certificate number for use for qualifying purchases made on or after October 1, 2014. *Please note that the qualifications have been modified.

Farmer’s need to complete and submit to the Department of Revenue, either a Form E595QF for Qualifying Farmer Exemption or Form E595CF for Conditional Farmer Exemptions. If they qualify, the State will send them a certificate with an exemption number. The farmer will then need to complete a new Form E595E Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement Certificate that includes the new exemption number issued by the state and submit this to Agri Supply®. You will need to return the completed E959E form to each Agri Supply® retail location you wish to purchase from, including mail order/ online, as the forms are location specific.

NC Tax Exepmtion form E-595E

The law has changed, Agri Supply will NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT OLD AGRICULTURAL EXEMPTION CERTIFICATES on or after October 1, 2014.
