Paul is now part of the fourth generation in America that is involved in farming and hopes the next generation will be involved also. Through his blog he provides analysis and insight to farmer tax questions.
Even though the IRS granted relief for farmers to file their tax return by April 15 of this year, there is a "gotcha" in the details.
If you file your return on or before March 1, 2013, you must also payyour tax on or before March 1. If you file on March 1 and then pay your tax on April 15, you most likely will be subject to the penalty.
Therefore, to file and pay your tax without the penalty, make sure to file between March 2 and April 15, 2013. Otherwise, you may owe a penalty you were not counting on.
