CO Corn Action Alert: Take Action on Improper Taxation of Ag Fertilizer…NOW!

When the bill for the state’s 2019-2020 budget was passed, it included a tax surprise for Colorado farmers from the Department of Revenue.
In a rule-making hearing, the department decided to tax agricultural compounds including fertilizer.

HB19-1329 would fix this issue and ensure fertilizer is not subject to sales tax.

The bill has bipartisan support, but the risk of it getting caught up in the end-of-session partisan debate is likely.  Many bills are expected to die on the calendar before they can be passed.

Colorado Corn Growers Association is asking you to take a few minutes and ask the State Senate to prioritize the fertilizer bill and be sure it gets through.
