CARROLLTON — The owners of a feed-and-seed store in Carrollton say they’ve won an appeal to the state Department of Revenue and they won’t have to pay retroactive sales taxes on rabbit feed.
Harmon Eddie Stanford tells the Greenwood Commonwealth that he and his wife, Laverne, were upset when a Revenue employee told them they should have been charging the tax.
The owners of Stanford Feed and Seed say they thought rabbit feed was exempt from sales tax, as are other types of livestock feed.
They say they were told to start taxing the rabbit feed unless the purchaser can prove the rabbits are being raised for food or for sale.
State offices were closed Nov. 11, and the Department of Revenue could not immediately be reached.
