12 (a) The sale at retail, storage, use or other consumption in this state
14 (1) Tangible personal property which will enter into and become an ingre-
15 dient or component part of tangible personal property manufactured, proc-
16 essed, mined, produced or fabricated for sale.
17 (2) Tangible personal property primarily and directly used or consumed in
18 or during a manufacturing, processing, mining, farming, or fabricating
19 operation, including, but not limited to, repair parts, lubricants,
20 hydraulic oil, and coolants, which become a component part of such tangi-
21 ble personal property; provided that the use or consumption of such tangi-
22 ble personal property is necessary or essential to the performance of such

25 pose of producing or inducing a chemical or physical change in the product
26 or for removing impurities from the product or otherwise placing the prod-

28 subsection (a)(2) of this section, and chemicals and equipment used in
29 clean-in-place systems in the food processing and food manufacturing

18 manufacturing, processing, mining, farming or fabricating operations such as
19 maintenance and janitorial equipment and supplies.
20 (f) Without regard to the use of such property, this section does not

33 property exempt under this section.
34 (5) Machinery, equipment, tools or other property used to manufacture,

42 (6) Any improvement to real property or fixture thereto or any tangible
43 personal property which becomes or is intended to become a component of
44 any real property or any improvement or fixture thereto.

47 or fabricating tangible personal property exempted from tax under this

49 (9) Tangible personal property described in section 63-3622HH, Idaho
51 (g) Any tangible personal property exempt under this section which ceases
52 to qualify for this exemption, and does not qualify for any other exemption or
53 exclusion of the taxes imposed by this chapter, shall be subject to use tax
54 based upon its value at the time it ceases to qualify for exemption. Any tan-
55 gible personal property taxed under this chapter which later qualifies for
1 this exemption shall not entitle the owner of it to any claim for refund.

21 this exemption apply to vehicles or equipment described in section 63-3622HH,
22 Idaho Code ; nor shall this exemption include tangible personal property used
23 to produce tangible personal property exempted from the tax under this chapter
