HB 290: Ad valorem tax; definitions related to exemption of certain agricultural equipment; revise

Voted on Wednesday February 22, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

HB 290 exempts agriculture equipment from ad valorem taxes in some instances.
This bill re-defines "agriculture equipment" to include farm tractors, combines and all other farm equipment (except motor vehicles) - whether they be owned, leased, or on a lease-purchase plan.
The equipment must be directly used in the production of farm products by a family-owned qualified farm products producer
