Successful Farming

Just how innovative of a farmer or rancher are you? If you can answer yes to any of the following questions regarding your farm operation, you might consider learning more about the little-known, underused Research & Development (R&D) tax credit.

  • Have you experimented with new or different fertilizers?
  • Have you planted cover crops?
  • Have you developed new feeds/feeding techniques for livestock?
  • Have you implemented new ways to protect crops from disease?
  • Have you improved harvesting practices?

These are a few examples available to you that reward for innovative efforts, but there are many more possibilities. In years when cash flows are constricted by lower commodity prices, you should seek techniques and practices to keep additional dollars in your pocket. The R&D tax credit may be the tool that does just that.

alliantgroup Issues Statement on the Passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

By |January 11th, 2018|Press Releases|0 Comments

HOUSTON, Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Last month, Congress passed, and the president signed into law, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This legislation represents the most comprehensive reform of the tax code in over three decades and implements a number of sweeping policy changes that are intended to provide tax relief for U.S. businesses and encourage long-term economic growth.

The highlights of the legislation include major reductions in individual, business and corporate tax rates as well as the removal (or reform) of a number of incentives to offset rate reductions. Most of the corporate provisions in the new law are permanent while those on the individual side (due to budgetary restraints) are set to expire by the end of 2025. However, it is the expectation of GOP lawmakers that a future Congress will make the changes for individuals and pass-throughs permanent.

On the corporate side, the new law lowers […]

Even though Congress passed the biggest tax overhaul in more than 30 years only a few weeks ago, there’s likely to be more tax-related legislation coming out in the very near future.

The continuing resolution that lawmakers have been debating to fund the government could contain some tax provisions.

“Immediately there’s a look at the CR coming up in the next week or two having a tax bill attached to that, which will have some of the energy extender provisions that have been on the to-do list for quite a while,” said Dean Zerbe, national managing director at alliantgroup, a former senior counsel and tax counsel for the Senate Finance Committee, during an interview last week. “I think that’s part of it. There’s a cleanup of a […]
