The Idaho Tax Commission recently released guidance explaining how the production exemption applies to the mining industry.

Idaho's production exemption applies to equipment and supplies used in qualifying mining activities when the purchaser (1) is engaged in qualifying mining activities more than 50% of the time, (2) owns the mined ore, (3) sells the ore or transfers the ore to another for the purpose of sale, and (4) reports profits and losses on an income tax return. Qualifying mining activities include developing a mine with known deposits, operating a mine, drilling holes, blasting, breaking ore for easier removal, removing ore from a mine, backfilling mined areas, and ore processing. The exemption also applies to custom mining, which involves the performance of qualifying mining activities for a miner. The exemption does not apply to ore exploration activities, hobby mining, or the mining of ore for personal or business use.
