Ag Timber Tax Exemptions
Ag/Timber Numbers and Exemption Certificates
Texas law requires a person claiming an exemption from sales tax on the purchase of certain items used to produce agricultural and timber products for sale to hold an Agricultural and Timber Exemption Registration Number (Ag/Timber Number). The law also requires the Ag/Timber Number to be renewed every four years on a uniform date, regardless of the date the number was first issued. Effective Jan. 1, 2016, the exemption certificate must also include a current expiration date. The next renewal date will begin in October 2019 and will continue through December 31, 2019.
For more information, please visit the Texas Comptroller’s website at comptroller.texas.gov/taxhelp or contact their office by calling 1-800-252-5555.

BCEC encourages Ag/Timber Number holders to verify their Ag/Timber numbers are up to date and have a current expiration date. Members who are exempt are responsible for furnishing BCEC their Ag/Timer information.
