Subject: Agricultural Building Tax Exclusion
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that will help preserve farms and increase the activity levels of agricultural operations in this Commonwealth.

These measures will be achieved through legislation excluding building materials used for the construction and maintenance of animal production buildings from our Commonwealth’s sales and use tax. The result of said action will lower building costs and help farmers be more competitive. This Commonwealth’s farmers are currently at a disadvantage in this regard as many of our neighboring states have adopted similar legislation. The estimated total tax liability would be less than $4.2 million annually.

Introduced as HB897
