Ag exemption process involves two steps

With the new year, there will be a new process for anyone applying for a Texas Agriculture or Timber Registration Number from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. Unknown to most people, a second step will be required. The person using this number for the first time at each retail location also must file a properly completed exemption certificate.

As stated in a letter from the Comptroller’s Office, when the taxpayer receives a registration number, “You must provide this number to suppliers on a properly completed exemption certificate when claiming an exemption from Texas sales tax on qualifying purchases.”

Following the 82nd Regular Legislative Session, House Bill 268, beginning Jan. 1, will require a registration number for those claiming an exemption from sales tax for items purchased for ag and timber production.

Also on Jan. 1, the new Texas Agricultural Sales and Use Tax Exemption certificate, Form 01-923, must be filed. A different form (01-925) is required for those purchasing items used in the production of timber.

The new form replaces the generic exemption certificate, form 01-339, used in the past for ag or timber exemptions. According to the Comptroller’s website, “Blanket exemption certificates issued to suppliers on the old form must be updated and replaced with new certificates for purchases made on or after Jan. 1, 2012.”

In a Dec. 2 phone conversation with R.J. DeSilva with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, DeSilva confirmed the revised certification forms are required.

The Texas Agricultural Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification forms can be downloaded from the Comptroller’s website, or retailers will provide them as a courtesy to the buyer.

This new form is only needed once at each retailer as a “blanket exemption certificate,” DeSilva said.

The completed certificates will remain on file and will be used by the retailer if an audit is performed regarding sales tax.

Form 01-924 (9-11) asks for the “Driver license number and state, if items are purchased with cash.”

DeSilva stated that this line does not have to be completed. The line was added to aid in the prevention of fraud, he said. Producers should have their own numbers and not use another person’s number for a different operation. If the line is completed, misuse can be tracked.

Those seeking a registration number may do so online at The applicant will receive the number immediately and the process takes approximately 10 minutes.

Applications may be downloaded from the website, or call 1-800-252-5555 to receive one by mail.

To download an exemption certificate form 01-924, visit, or ask for a form where you do business.
