Maximize Farm Tax Deductions in Kentucky

Landowners in Kentucky can save on taxes through farm tax deductions by testing their farmland for excess soil fertility, which reveals legacy nutrients from past fertilization. By proving to the IRS that their land holds these valuable nutrients, landowners can lighten their tax burden. This process requires soil fertility testing to provide the necessary burden of proof, potentially leading to significant savings for farmers and landowners.

How to Claim the Excess Soil Fertility Deduction in Pennsylvania

To claim the excess soil fertility deduction, you must assess the value of excess nutrients. 

  1. Soil Sampling and Mapping

    An expert will gather soil samples from various points on your land. The collected samples will undergo lab analysis to ascertain the nutrient level of your farmland’s soil.
  2. Establishing Nutrient Values:

    After determining the nutrient levels in your soil, their market value is assessed next. This evaluation is based on the current market prices for fertilizers with comparable nutrient profiles.
  3. Generating a Comprehensive Report:

    A detailed report outlining the soil sampling process, results of the nutrient analysis, and the fair market value of surplus soil fertility will be prepared. This document is essential for providing evidence to the IRS.
