Sales Tax State Exemption on Fence Supplies and Service
The State of Kansas today enacted a law that assists victims of the recent wildfires in our area. It exempts from Kansas sales tax, fencing supplies and/or services for replacing fences that were damaged/or destroyed by wildfires.
If they have already purchased the supplies and/or services, they can apply for a refund from the state of Kansas with the second attached form.
If anyone has further questions, please call Taxpayer Assistance at 785-368-8222 and they will be able to help.
