A Great Opportunity for our 4-H Members

Rochelle Wilking, Husser, Brittany

During the regular state legislative session of 2019, a bill was passed to expand the definition of a commercial farmer to include certain student farmers who meet specific requirements in relation to sales and tax exemptions. Through the Act of 199 individuals under the age of 23 and meeting the defined criteria of a “student farmer” can now be sales tax exempt when purchasing the following:

  • Feed and feed additives for the purpose of sustaining livestock;
  • Seeds or plants to be used to produce food ordinarily used for consumption by humans or livestock;
  • Fertilizer to be used to produce food used for consumption by humans or livestock.

This a great opportunity for our 4-H/Future Farmers of America members who are raising and/or showing livestock and agriculture products to be able to save on some expenses. You may access Form 1098 via the following link: Student Farmers Certification

Youth will need to complete this form and have signed by their 4-H or ANR Agent certifying the youth is a member of the parish 4-H program.

The current exemption certificate will be good until July 31, 2022. Yearly each July, the Louisiana Department of Revenue will update the certificate and provide LSU with an updated pdf form for use in the upcoming school year. The updated exemption certificate will also be available for download on the Louisiana Department of Revenue website.
