Growing and Selling Seasonal Produce in Utah
Utah Code 59-12-104 provides for the exemption of sales taxes on seasonal produce, seedlings and plants during their harvest season when sold by the producer or the producer’s employee or immediate family.
To enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of this legislation during the 2011 harvest season, Utahns can find an increasing number of farmer’s markets throughout the state. Utah also has many budding small farm, food co-op and CSA (community supported agriculture) programs, including producers who use a revolutionary business trend called SPIN farming.
For Utah growers, the Sales Tax Information for Nurseries, Florists, Landscapers and Related Industries sheet is a quick and useful guide to tax exemptions in the agricultural business.
