Farmers with any number of sheep or involved in any sector of farming can tax their vehicle commercially in Mayo.
That was confirmed by Mulranny based Independent Councillor Michael Holmes, following a meeting this week with Peter Duggan Head of Finance with Mayo County Council.
Cllr Holmes says sheep farmers with any size flock or farmers involved in any enterprise can now tax their vehicle commercially.
Mayo IFA had met with the Mayo Motor Tax Office last week and following that meeting it was confirmed that sheep farmers with a flock of 20 or more, or farmers in certain enterprises would quality for commercial tax only.
However Cllr Holmes says Mr Duggan contacted the motor tax office during their meeting and those exclusions will not apply.
