  • The Tax Benefits of Conservation Easements

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Oct 6, 2019 

    Conservation easements have grown in popularity in recent years, partly due to the impactful tax benefits available to the donor. A conservation easement is a restriction on the use of land, voluntarily granted by the landowner to a conservation organization or to a government sponsored entity. The general rule for permanent conservation easement donations is that the property owner can take a charitable contribution tax deduction on their return for the difference in the fair market value of the land before the conservation easement and after the conservation easement. Currently, the donor can take a conservation easement charitable deduction of up to 50% of their taxable income in a given year. Should the value of the conservation easement charitable deduction exceed this taxable income threshold in the first year (because of lower than expected earnings or simply because of the size of the deduction), the taxpayer can use the remaining deduction over a fifteen-year carryforward period (no carryback is allowed and the same 50% taxable income limit applies during the carryforward period)...

    1031 Exchanges and Farm Land: 5 Things that Landowners Need to Know

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Aug 2, 2019 

    A 1031 Exchange is a tax-deferred swap program in which farmers and others in the agriculture industry can participate. Farmland, vacant land, and certain agriculture assets are considered real estate assets under the Internal Revenue Code... #4 – Certain Conservation Easements Can Qualify for 1031 Treatment The IRS has concluded in a number of different Private Letter Rulings that Conservation Easement transactions can qualify for 1031 Exchange Treatment if the taxpayer rolls funds received into additional like-kind property. Private Letter Ruling 200649028 clarified the rules when a taxpayer receives tax credits rather than cash as part of a conservation easement... Consult your tax advisor if considering a 1031 Exchange as part of a Conservation Easement...

    Top 10 Accounting & Tax Benefits for Farmers & Farming Businesses

    By Tyler Davis

    Published Sep 11, 2019 

    Farmers and Agribusiness Companies are granted certain tax breaks and industry-specific deductions from the IRS. The service understands both the complexities and constraints of farmers as well as their essential role in our nation's economy. I have listed out the top ten most important tax benefits, accounting methods, and tax deductions related to farmers. 1... Conservation Easement Deduction If a farmer establishes a conservation easement on their property, they receive a tax benefit Under current federal law, the taxpayer is allowed a deduction limited to 30% of their adjusted gross income in the year of the deduction, and any amount not used in the first year can be carried forward and used over the next five years...

    Tax Agriculture Tax Planning Strategies for Year End 2019 – Part 2

    By Tyler Davis

    Updated May 14, 2020 

    This is the second of a two-part series focusing on tax savings, planning opportunities, and other tax considerations for year-end 2019. Part I, published on AgFuse in November of 2019, focused on planning opportunities for farmers with higher than expected earnings in 2019 while Part II focuses on tax planning opportunities for farmers with lower than expected current year performance. Farmers tend to think that tax planning opportunities are only available in high-income years or when they close on a big transaction (selling your property, selling a large amount of stock for a capital gain, etc). However, just as tax planning is essential in those situations, it is also critical to consider tax planning strategies during a down year... If the farmer is not able to adjust the timing of revenue, a farmer who uses the cash basis of accounting could also defer expenses (including any potential conservation easement deduction) to 2020 to reduce the amount of the current-year loss...

    Hebe or Veronica bush - Everything about this plant

    By Robert Lopez

    Published Oct 31, 2020 

    Hebe or veronica is a shrub with an extraordinary inflorescence, which due to its ease of care is an excellent candidate for low-maintenance gardens. Its ornamental appeal lies not only in its curious flowers, but also in its leaves, which can be green or variegated. The origin of this precious shrub is New Zealand, it is evergreen and can reach 50 cm in height and the same width dimension. It is a good plant to be used as a path delimiter, to form small fences or to have in a pot decorating the balcony or patio. Let's see below what are the most important care you should have to keep your veronica bushes strong and beautiful...

    How to Create the Most Effective Soil Sampling Program

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Oct 1, 2020 

    With harvest either underway or on the horizon for most growers in the U. S. , now is a good time to prepare for your soil sampling program. Most universities and the NRCS recommend taking soil samples in the off-season, after the last crop harvest, and before the next cash crop is planted... If you choose to do it yourself, see Ackeron’s step-by-step instructions for pulling samples in the “Soil Sampling Guidelines,” and keep the following best practices in mind:Pull Different Depths Under Conservation TillageNutrients tend to stratify in no-till and reduced-tillage fields, which can lead to overapplication of inputs if we don’t sample at different depths, Ackerson explains...

    On the Offensive with Cover Crops

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Jan 24, 2018 

    In the past few years, we have made a concerted effort to increase the usage of cover crops and other conservation practices on our farm. I have learned a lot of lessons from this experience but one stands out above the rest... In fact, I would argue that if intensively managed, conservation practices should significantly enhance yields. The cornerstone of any good crop production system involving conservation techniques is the establishment of cover crops... If you are interested in giving multi-species cover crops a try, I’d encourage you to stop by the NRCS office in Bennettsville and speak with Frank Stephens about potential conservation programs that can help you get started...
