February 2020 – Lesser-known change in Trump tax cuts is a consequential tax-avoidance opportunity, Progressive Dairyman

Opportunity zones are economically distressed areas designated by the governors of each state and U.S. territories. The objective is to provide tax incentives that will bring private domestic capital to improve housing, commercial enterprises such as hotels, restaurants, manufacturing facilities and agricultural developments to these communities.

February 2018 – Agribusiness celebrates the new year with a beneficial tax law, Progressive Dairyman
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law on December 22, 2017, is the largest overhaul of U.S tax code in 30 years. Most of the tax-cut provisions are effective immediately for tax year 2018. However, many are temporary and scheduled to sunset or phase out in future years, if no further congressional action is taken. We believe the new law has many tax advantages that will be beneficial to the majority of farmers and dairymen.
