How Clients Realize Value

Clients can use these farmland tax deductions to offset current and future farm income, generate tax refunds and balance inheritance tax, or offset non-farm related income depending on how they own their agricultural land. Boa Safra delivers its reports to clients to enable them and their CPAs to identify how to optimize their individual situations and take advantage of lesser-known agricultural tax breaks.

The client can file the report in a variety of ways largely depending on when the property was purchased.

1. Land Purchased
Within This
Tax Year

Purchasers of new land share the Boa Safra report with their tax preparers for filing year-end taxes. This allows landowners to take the farmland tax deduction over a variety of timeframes (ranging from as little as one year to numerous years).

2. Land Purchased
Within The Last Three
Tax Years

If the land was purchased within the last three tax years, landowners use the Boa Safra report by filing an amended return. Landowners can also explore tax refunds when filing amended returns in addition to deductions.

3. Land Purchased
Prior To Three Tax Years Ago but After Jan 1, 1960

For this timeframe of prior purchases, landowners can file a Form 3115 which allows them to correct an incorrect accounting method used on prior returns. This allows landowners to take the built-up farmland tax deduction in the year that Form 3115 is filed.
