    Delaware Statutory Trust – Implication to Landowners & Farmers

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Sep 15  

    The Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST) is a newer investment vehicle that allows real estate property owners, including farmers and ag landowners, to purchase tenants in common ownership in passive investment properties. DSTs are separate legal entities and are becoming a more popular choice for Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 exchanges. Revenue Ruling 2004-86 allows a DST to own 100% of a real estate asset and allows a maximum of 499 investors to own an interest in the trust. Delaware Statutory Trusts have many advantages over traditional real estate purchases and traditional 1031 Exchanges. Investments in Delaware Statutory Trusts can appear very similar to investments in a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT)...

    The Tax Consequences of Farm Property Destruction, Vandalism, or Theft

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Aug 7  

    A common issue among landowners, both large and small, is vandalism occurring on the property. One of the most interesting stories regarding vandalism is a Florida farm-owner we know woke up in the middle of the night in the ’80s to the cartel landing a plane full of cocaine on his property without permission. In doing so, the plane ran over his fence & caused a ton of damage to the property. When something like this happens, farmers are surprised to know of the potential tax consequences or benefits of this event. A vandalism, theft, or destruction event usually results in a taxpayer filing a police report and an insurance claim...

    The Best Business Entity Structure for Farms

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated Jun 20  

    One of the most common questions I receive as a tax professional is “What type of business entity should I choose?” Most new business owners are overwhelmed at this decision and do not fully understand the differences between types of entities. This article will explain rules, filing requirements, and benefits of the main type of business entities: sole proprietorship, LLC, Partnership, S-Corporation, and C-Corporation. Each decision is dependent upon the facts & circumstances of the owner(s), but a thorough understanding of each business type is critical in making the correct entity decision. Sole Proprietorships:The easiest, quickest type of entity to set up is a sole proprietorship. A sole proprietorship is not separate from its owner...

Some farmers are counting down the days until retirement, and others are scared to retire because they aren’t sure what they will do without work. Many farmers who have worked so hard for decades have not developed any hobbies outside of farming. The decision to retire is often one of uncertainty. In evaluating this decision, farmers should analyze not just the physical reasons to retire, but also the financial implications of this decision...
