TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey equine attorney Steven Tarshis is collecting signatures on a petition supporting the repeal of sales tax on horse stalls.

A bill that would eliminate the sales tax on horse stall rental was introduced on Feb. 1 in the New Jersey Assembly by Ronald Dancer. The petition will be delivered to Assemblyman Dancer to show that horsemen in the state support the measure.

Separately stated charges for stall rental became subject to sales tax on Oct. 1, 2006. Such charges are treated as the “furnishing of space for storage.”

This bill would clarify the sales tax collection responsibilities of horse boarding businesses in New Jersey by providing an exemption from the sales and use tax for the lease or rental of stable stalls and charges for horse boarding and other related services. Training services are currently not taxed.
