Iowa has recently adopted a regulation addressing the sales tax rebate for owners or operators of qualifying raceway facilities in the state.

Owners or operators of qualifying raceways may get a rebate for tax on sales occurring at the raceway facility between January 1, 2015 and January 1, 2025. Generally, sales occur at the raceway facility if they occur within the boundaries of the raceway facility portion of the fairgrounds and are sourced to the raceway.

The maximum rebate is limited to either (1) $1.8 million, or (2) project costs incurred and paid between May 16, 2018 and January 1, 2025, whichever is less. "Project costs" are costs incurred and paid in connection with the construction and installation of new property or of modifications to existing property. That property must be a part of the raceway facility.
