Fresh produce at a grocery store.

The Washington Department of Revenue recently issued a special notice on business and occupation (B&O) tax exemptions available to manufacturers of fresh fruit or vegetables.

The B&O tax applies to several kinds of business income, including income from manufacturers' sales. There is an exemption from the B&O tax for the value of products sold by fresh fruit or vegetable manufacturers. There is also an exemption for products manufactured and sold at wholesale to a customer who transports the products outside Washington. Food manufacturers eligible for these exemptions include manufacturers who can, preserve, freeze, process, or dehydrate fresh fruits or vegetables.

These exemptions are set to expire June 30, 2015. After these exemptions expire, income from sales that used to be exempt will instead by subject to tax at a reduced rate.
