Tax Reform Update at Top Producer Seminar

January 20, 2018 11:00 AM

The new tax law and what it means for farmers is Paul Neiffer's topic of choice for the 2018 Top Producer Seminar. 

"Overall with the new law, for farmers at least, there's a lot more potential to get their income down," says Neiffer. 

Neiffer does say however that it is important to look at each farmer's individual situation. He hopes to focus specifically on the 199A deduction for cooperatives.

The 2018 Top Producer Seminar on Jan. 23-26 will be hosted at the Hilton Chicago Hotel Downtown. In 2017, the event attracted producers representing over 4 million acres and 26 states.

  Glad to see someone else disagrees with the tax advisor. The farmers of this country need to wake up. Every tax break and government payment we get kill the free market. All this tax break will do is make the Coops rich, keep grain prices cheap = Cheap Food, let farmers hold on a couple more years until they lose everything. If we want higher prices cut acres / quit over producing. Take a lesson from OPEC.

  Paul Go on DEBT CLOCK REAL TIME look at the balance sheet of this country a tax break isn't going to help , were insolvent the FED is using everyone's assets to cover the debt. Some of us don't owe on anything and there putting are assets in the pool saying we have 45% equity but everything is hyper inflated . Our asset values are hyper inflated 4 to 5 times high than what they should be . Paul a child born today owes over $200,000.00 of its share of this 70 trillion and almost $8,000.00 of interest for the year. These number that debt clock gets are from the FED's departments quarterly reports THESE ARE THE FED'S NUMBERS THERE LIGETIMATE.
