Farmer Life !NEW!
Hiraku dies purely by accident due to a God not giving him good luck, so he reincarnated him in another world as an apology; even turning a holy artifact into a multi-purpose tool for him. This new life for Hiraku ends up becoming quite odd, slowly building a community and village of differing species; with him serving as their mayor.
SEOUL, South Korea -- Soldiers from the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) and Republic of Korea Special Forces responded to a farming accident while conducting partnered training in the Republic of Korea on April 25, saving the civilian's life.
Together, the U.S. and Republic of Korea Special Forces Soldiers responded to an injured, unconscious, elderly Korean farmer who fell from his tractor and lacerated his right knee. The tractor subsequently caught fire and burned the farmer's airway. Local civilians flagged down the Soldiers, who stabilized the patient and extinguished the tractor fire, then transferred the patient to emergency medical services.

The Rural Tax Education website is a source for information concerning agriculturally related income and deductions and self-employment tax. The website is available for farmers and ranchers, other agricultural producers, Extension educators, and anyone interested in learning about the tax side of the agricultural community. Members of the National Farm Income Tax Extension Committee are contributors to the website, and the website is hosted by Utah State University Cooperative Extension.

A farmer, like other taxpayers, must keep records to prepare an accurate income tax return and determine the correct amount of tax. This chapter explains the benefits of keeping records, what kinds of records you must keep, and how long you must keep them for federal tax purposes.
Most farmers use the cash method because they find it easier to keep records using the cash method. Certain farm corporations and partnerships and all tax shelters are generally required to use an accrual method of accounting. However, for tax years beginning in 2022, farm corporations or partnerships that have average annual gross receipts of $27 million or less for the 3 preceding tax years and are not tax shelters can use the cash method instead of the accrual method. See Accrual Method Required, later. Also, see Inventory, later.
Frances Jones, a farmer who uses the cash method of accounting was entitled to receive a $10,000 payment on a grain contract in December 2022. Frances was told in December that the payment was available, and requested not to be paid until January 2023. Frances must include this payment in her 2022 income because it was made available to her in 2022.
You are a farmer who uses the cash method and a calendar tax year. You sell grain in December 2022 under a bona fide arm's-length contract that calls for payment in 2023. You include the proceeds from the sale in your 2023 gross income since that is the year payment is received. However, if the contract states that you have the right to the proceeds from the buyer at any time after the grain is delivered, you must include the sales price in your 2022 income, even if payment is received in the following year.
Generally, you cannot deduct expenses paid in advance. This rule applies to any expense paid far enough in advance to, in effect, create an asset with a useful life extending substantially beyond the end of the current tax year.
Generally, if you keep an inventory, you must use an accrual method of accounting to determine your gross income. However, see Exception below. An inventory is necessary to clearly show income when the production, purchase, or sale of merchandise is an income-producing factor. See Pub. 538 for more information. Also, see Farm Inventory, later, for more information on items that must be included in inventory by farmers, and inventory valuation methods for farmers.
Jane, who is a farmer, uses a calendar tax year and an accrual method of accounting. To take advantage of early payment discounts, she paid for seed in October 2021. The seed was delivered to her in March 2022. Economic performance did not occur until the seed was delivered and planted. Jane incurs the expense in 2022.
A farmer can determine costs required to be allocated under the uniform capitalization rules by using the farm-price or unit-livestock-price inventory method. This applies to any plant or animal, even if the farmer does not hold or treat the plant or animal as inventory property.
You are a farmer who uses an accrual method of accounting. You keep your books on the calendar year basis. You sell grain in December 2022 but you are not paid until January 2023. Because you use the accrual method, you report the grain sale in 2022 because that is when the income was earned, even though you did not receive the income until 2023.
You must determine the number of animals you would have sold had you followed your usual business practice in the absence of the weather-related condition. Do this by considering all the facts and circumstances, but don't take into account your sales in any earlier year for which you postponed the gain. If you haven't yet established a usual business practice, rely on the usual business practices of similarly situated farmers in your general region.
Mike Green is a cotton farmer. He uses the cash method of accounting and files his tax return on a calendar year basis. He has deducted all expenses incurred in producing the cotton and has a zero basis in the commodity. In 2021, Mike pledged 1,000 pounds of cotton as collateral for a CCC loan of $2,000 (a loan rate of $2.00 per pound). In 2022, he repaid the loan and redeemed the cotton for $1,500 when the world price was $1.50 per pound (lower than the loan amount). Later in 2022, he sold the cotton for $2,500.
The Secretary of Agriculture certified that the payment was primarily made for conserving soil and water resources, protecting or restoring the environment, improving forests, or providing a habitat for wildlife.
Any program of a state, possession of the United States, a political subdivision of any of these, or of the District of Columbia, under which payments are made to individuals primarily for conserving soil, protecting or restoring the environment, improving forests, or providing a habitat for wildlife. Several state programs have been approved. For information about the status of those programs, contact the state offices of the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and the Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS).
On July 1, 2021, Mr. Brown, a patron of a cooperative association, bought a used machine for his dairy farm business from the association for $2,900. The machine has a life of 7 years under MACRS. Mr. Brown files his return on a calendar year basis. For 2021, he claimed a depreciation deduction of $311, using the 10.71% depreciation rate from the 150% declining balance, half-year convention table (shown in Table A-14 in Appendix A of Pub. 946). On July 2, 2022, the cooperative association paid Mr. Brown a $300 cash patronage dividend for buying the machine. Mr. Brown adjusts the basis of the machine and figures his depreciation deduction for 2021 (and later years) as follows.
A tenant farmer purchased fertilizer for $1,000 in April 2021. He deducted $1,000 on his 2021 Schedule F and the entire deduction reduced his tax. The landowner reimbursed him $500 of the cost of the fertilizer in February 2022. The tenant farmer must include $500 in income on his 2022 tax return because the entire deduction decreased his 2021 tax.
Poultry (including egg-laying hens and baby chicks) bought for use (or for both use and resale) in your farm business. However, include only the amount that would be deductible in the following year if you had capitalized the cost and deducted it ratably over the lesser of 12 months or the useful life of the poultry.
If you take out a policy on your life or on the life of another person with a financial interest in your farm business to get or protect a business loan, you can't deduct the premiums as a business expense. In the event of death, the proceeds of the policy aren't taxed as income even if they are used to liquidate the debt.
If you are a cash method farmer, you can deduct the cost of hens and baby chicks bought for commercial egg production, or for raising and resale, as an expense on Schedule F, Part I, in the year paid if you do it consistently and it doesn't distort income. You can also deduct the cost of seeds and young plants bought for further development and cultivation before sale as an expense on Schedule F, Part I, when paid if you do this consistently and you don't figure your income on the crop method. However, see Prepaid Farm Supplies, earlier, for a rule that may limit your deduction for these items.
You can't deduct certain personal, living, and family expenses as business expenses. These include rent and insurance premiums paid on property used as your home; life insurance premiums on yourself or your family; the cost of maintaining cars, trucks, or horses for personal use; allowances to minor children; attorneys' fees and legal expenses incurred in personal matters; and household expenses. Likewise, the cost of purchasing or raising produce or livestock consumed by you or your family isn't deductible.
In some localities, a soil or water conservation or drainage district incurs expenses for soil or water conservation and levies an assessment against the farmers who benefit from the expenses. You can deduct as a conservation expense amounts you pay or incur for the part of an assessment that: 041b061a72
