What do I include in supplies?

Examples of reportable supplies are ordinary office, janitorial, manufacturing, fuel and chemical supplies; fuel, insecticides and fertilizer used by agricultural taxpayers; and medical supplies held by a doctor’s office to be given to patients, incidental to service, even if the samples were provided at no charge.

Put in the total amount of the retail value of supplies you had on hand on January 1st. If you are not sure, make an estimate of the amount you normally keep on hand.
