    Looming Tax Changes Potentially Catastrophic for Farm Families

    By North American Ag

    Published Sep 15, 2021 

    Last week NCBA released a letter to House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committee urging them to consider the implications that changes to federal tax policy will have on family-owned agricultural businesses. Nearly 330 trade associations representing family-owned food, agriculture and related businesses agree that, when drafting legislation to implement President Biden's Build Back Better agenda, it is critical that the “American Families Plan” must also support family farms and ranches. “Congress must consider the complex structure of family-owned agricultural businesses that serve as the backbone of rural economies; therefore, understand how changes to long-standing provisions in the tax code could be detrimental to the financial viability of these businesses as they transfer to the next generation,” said Senior Executive Director of Government Affairs Danielle Beck... Whether their family has preserved the land for generations, or they are a beginning, veteran or minority farmer getting their start in the industry – without federal tax policy that supports a viable business climate for the next generation of producers, building on the environmental and economic contributions of today’s producers is impossible and risks compromising our nation’s ability to produce a safe, abundant and affordable food supply. The consequences of taxing family farms and ranches out of business completely undermines the 'Build Back Better' agenda...

    By Nancy VanderByl

    Published Mar 7

    "Let's make sure our voices are not drowned out by irresponsible and unreasonable policy makers. ...Let's make sure we are not only financially incentivized, compensated properly for adoption but provided the opportunity for profit potential creation. Please, engage in this dialogue. We have to define these terms and expressions and policies with good science, common sense, reasonable solutions and measurable outcomes that are financial and environmentally beneficial."
