Frequently Asked Questions
I have been approved as a commercial farmer and have received the R-1091, Commercial Farmer Certification. What should I do with it?
The front of the exemption certificate contains two perforated wallet-sized certification cards at the bottom of the certificate. These cards may be removed and carried in the commercial farmer’s wallet, purse, glove box, or other easily accessible area. The top portion of the certificate should be retained by the commercial farmer in a safe place. If necessary, copies may be made of the top portion of the certification and provided to vendors if the wallet-sized cards have been lost or damaged.
The commercial farmer must present the card to his or her vendor and complete the required applicable exemption certificate when purchasing farm-related items. The back of the certification contains a list of farm-related items that can be purchased exempt from state sales tax. For additional information about the use of this certification, taxpayers can contact LDR by email at Sales.Inquiries@la.gov. or by phone at (855) 307-3893.
