Claiming the Security Tax Credit

The Ag Retailers Association has provided a guidance document, written by tax attorneys, to help you properly claim the federal security tax credit for items like locks and security cameras installed at your agrichemical facility.  Go to and under the "Agribusiness Security Tax Credit" heading there is a document called "Tax Guide on How to Claim Exemption" that your company accountant should find helpful.  The industry worked very hard to secure this tax credit so please take advantage of it.
