Updated Tax Savings / Cost Examples

About three weeks ago we did a post on whether your income tax from farming would go up or down under tax reform.  Since the Senate has now passed their bill, we are providing a new updated table to reflect the new 23% tax deduction for farm income (the old rate was 17.4%).

Here is the old table:









Here is the new table:







As you can see, the savings from the Senate proposal is even greater than what was in the old proposal.

We will keep you posted.

I don’t understand the 23% of farm income tax deduction. How does it work?
Is there a limitation? It sounds too good to be true.
Solar farming is getting a push. Does the new bill limit solar benefits? Thank you.
