In 2013 the General Assembly passed changes to tax law that became effective January 1, 2014. These changes created questions as to how some farms may become subject to an expanded sales tax base or not on products they sell, as well as, qualifying for sales tax exemption on farm inputs. House Bill 1050, passed by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor on May 29, 2014 provides clarification to some of these questions.
Seminars about gardening and landscaping are held at the Arboretum & Gardens at Tanglewood Park and are hosted by Forsyth County Cooperative Extension and Extension Master Gardener Volunteers. Come join us and learn something new for 2014!
