Maximize Farm Tax Deductions in North Carolina

Landowners in North Carolina can leverage farm tax deductions to lower the taxes they owe through soil fertility testing for excess soil fertility. This deduction is based on the value of legacy nutrients in farmland, previously enriched by fertilization. However, when claiming this benefit, the IRS mandates that landowners provide a burden of proof. Successfully documenting this can yield significant savings for those owning farmland.

How to Claim the Excess Soil Fertility Deduction in North Carolina

To claim the excess soil fertility deduction, you must first determine the fair market value of the excess nutrients in your soil through a three-step process.

  1. Soil Sampling and Mapping

    An expert will gather samples from diverse areas of your farmland for soil testing. The collected samples will be lab-tested to ascertain the nutrient composition in your soil.
  2. Establishing Nutrient Values:

    Upon identifying the nutrient content of your soil, we’ll proceed to evaluate the market value of these nutrients. We’ll do this by comparing current fertilizer prices with similar nutrient profiles.
  3. Generating a Comprehensive Report:

    A detailed report outlining the soil sampling process, nutrient analysis findings, and market value of surplus soil fertility will be prepared. This report is vital for providing proof to the IRS.
