3 How did SB 30 come to be? Governor Blunt identified the expansion of manufacturing as a priority. The tax exemption on manufacturing is a tool to aid in that expansion. “Manufacturing is a vital part of our diverse economy, and this legislation will help level the playing field for Missouri manufacturers.” – Governor Matt Blunt, June 13, 2007 Senator Nodler sponsored SB 30 and was instrumental in its passage. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

4 What does SB 30 do? How does SB 30 change current statute with regard to exemptions? – It expands the qualifying uses for some exemptions. – It creates new exemptions in some circumstances. – SB 30 only applies to state sales tax (4.225%), so the local/county sales/use tax still applies. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

5 Where are the manufacturing exemptions? The exemptions outlined in today’s presentation are in section , RSMo. – Subsection 1 contains definitions. – Subsection 2 contains provisions related primarily toward manufacturing and the processing of recovered materials. – Subsection 3 contains provisions related to broadcasting, defense contracts, chapter 100 bonds, and railroad infrastructure. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

6 Definitions Processing – any mode of treatment, act, or series of acts performed upon materials to transform or reduce them to a different state or thing, including treatment necessary to maintain or preserve such processing by the producer at the production facility Recovered materials – those materials which have been diverted or removed from the solid waste stream for sale, use, reuse, or recycling, whether or not they require subsequent separation and processing Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

13 Implementation Timeline SB 30 was signed by Governor Blunt on June 13, Department of Revenue implementation/legal meetings began on June 18, These exemptions will apply to purchases made on or after August 28, During the course of the summer, the department’s implementation/legal team will continue to meet and will receive the input you provide here. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

14 Rulemaking Process Department of Revenue writes the rule and files it. The rule is published by the Secretary of State in the Missouri Register days later. Following publication, there is a 30-day comment period. After which, the department compiles information from public comments and writes the final rule. A copy of the final rule is filed with the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules for a 30-day review period. After that period, the department files the final rule for publication in the Missouri Register by the Secretary of State. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

15 Rulemaking Process (continued) At the end of each month, all new final rules are published by the Secretary of State in the Code of State Regulations (CSR). Rules become effective 30 days after publication in the CSR unless the agency chooses a later date or an earlier date is set by statute. At that point they have the force and effect of law. The entire process takes about six months. Emergency rules may become necessary in the implementation of SB 30. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

16 What if I still have questions? As we conduct these meetings, the input we receive from you will be shared with our implementation/legal team. As we get closer to August 28 th, we will try to have more answers. Ultimately, if you are unsure of whether your process qualifies as a manufacturing process, you may submit a letter to the Department of Revenue along with a specific set of facts pertinent to your situation and request a letter ruling. Matt Blunt, Governor Trish Vincent, Director

17 Letter Rulings Letter rulings issued pursuant to section , RSMo, are binding on the Department of Revenue with respect to the taxpayer requesting the ruling for three years from the issue date of letter. Letter rulings apply only to the particular fact situation stated in the letter ruling request. Letter rulings are not binding on the Department of Revenue with respect to any other taxpayers.
