Kentucky Farm Bureau News - August 2012

KFB's Tax Advisory Committee has communicated two key policy positions to the chairman of the commission appointed by Governor Steve Beshear to develop recommendations for state tax reform. Lieutenant Governor Jerry Abramson was a special guest at the committee's annual meeting last month to discuss the work of the Governor's Blue  Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform and obtain feedback from the group. He was advised that KFB places a high priority on maintaining Kentucky's property tax law plus sales tax exemptions on farm production items.
