The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was supposed to simplify the tax code, but this legislation is anything but simple for farmers and ranchers. Changes related to qualified business income, excess business losses, and interest expense limitations actually make agricultural taxation more complex than ever.

On the bright side, the 2018 omnibus spending bill includes a provision to amend the Section 199A deduction in order to restore its benefits and the competitive balance between cooperative and non-cooperative organizations.

Join us for a lively discussion on the ways that current tax legislation may affect your farm or ranch both now and into the future.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • See what lies ahead for the Section 199A deduction
  • Identify how tax reform affects the business interest expense limitation, business losses and net operating loss rules, tax rates, and like-kind exchanges.
  • Consider how entity selection may help take advantage of tax cuts.
