Effects of Federal Tax Policy on Agriculture

by Ron Durst and James Monke

Agricultural Economic Report No. (AER-800) 58 pp, April 2001

Cover Image
This report analyzes the effects of the current Federal tax code on farming. It is the first study that applies the ERS farm typology to tax data. The study was initiated by the USDA National Commission on Small Farms and also evaluates tax proposals to assist beginning farmers. Investment, management, and production decisions in agriculture continue to be influenced by Federal tax laws, although this influence may be less than in earlier decades.

Keywords: Federal tax policy, income tax, social security tax, structure, small farms, estate and gift tax, capital gains, farm losses
