The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration recently ruled that purchase of sugar syrup, other feedstuffs, medicines, and vaccinations for raising bees or the production of honey is exempt.

The taxpayer raised honeybees for the purpose of producing honey and selling queen bees. The taxpayer purchased sugar syrup, other feed, medications, and vaccinations for the bees. Additionally, the taxpayer purchased wooden houses for the bees, trucks and trailers for moving bee colonies, honey processing equipment, and jars and containers for selling honey to customers.

The Department ruled that exemption for feed, medication, and vaccinations for livestock applied to bees used for commercial purposes. However, the trucks and trailers used to transport the bee colonies, and the honey processing equipment did not qualify for exemption because it was not used directly in the production of the honey. The wooden houses and containers for honey qualified for the resale exemption if they were resold with the bees or honey.
