210.0000 DEMONSTRATION, DISPLAY AND USE OF PROPERTY HELD FOR RESALE—General—Regulation 1669
210.0045 Brood Mares—When Use Occurs. The following are guidelines to determine if "use" is made of a brood mare held for resale.
(1) If a brood mare has two or more foals as a result of having been bred while owned by the person holding the mare for resale, the owner has made a taxable use of the horse as a brood mare since this is substantial evidence that the breeding was not a utilization either incidental or necessary to effect a sale.
(2) Generally, a taxable use will also be found if a brood mare, held for resale, has been capitalized and treated as a depreciable asset for federal and state income tax purposes.
(3) If a retailer of horses retains a brood mare for resale over two full years, regardless of whether it has ever foaled, the individual case would be suspect and presumed taxable.
(4) A mare having been bred in two successive breeding seasons or sold with a single foal at her side or sold while in foal and with a single foal at her side will not dictate a finding that there is a taxable use inconsistent with that of holding the brood mares for resale. 9/19/85.
