     Title: Agricultural Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

Effective 1/1/2012 a new law passed by the House Bill 268 will require a person claiming a sales tax exemption on electricity used in the production of agricultural and timber products to obtain an exemption registration number from the Texas Comptroller.  WCEC will require a registration number from each member who is claiming agricultural tax exemption or sales tax exemption for non-residential accounts.

 

All exemption certificates on file with Wharton County Electric Cooperative are good through the end of 2011.  A new exemption certificate showing the Ag/Timber number must be on file with WCEC before or on January 1, 2012 to claim an exemption.  If WCEC does not receive an updated sales tax Exemption Certificate by January 1, 2012, your non-residential accounts will be coded as taxable.  These accounts will not be coded as tax exempt until the registration number is provided to WCEC.

 

Please complete the Texas Agricultural Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification on the backside of this letter and return to WCEC on or before January 1, 2012.  Wharton County Electric Cooperative cannot accept an exemption certificate without a Texas Ag/Timber registration number.  If you are eligible for a Texas Agricultural and Timber Exemption Registration number and have not applied, please do so at your earliest convenience.

 

For any questions or concerns please contact Wharton County Electric Cooperative at 979-543-6271.  Thank you for giving this matter your immediate attention.
