Maximize Farm Tax Deductions in Pennsylvania

Farmers and landowners can significantly reduce their tax burden by leveraging farm tax deductions through soil fertility testing in Pennsylvania. This process uncovers excess soil fertility, also known as legacy nutrients, on their farmland. By identifying these nutrients, landowners can tap into valuable deductions for the fair market value of these inherited nutrients. However, the IRS requires landowners to provide the burden of proof for these deductions.

How to Claim the Excess Soil Fertility Deduction in Pennsylvania

To claim the excess soil fertility deduction, Boa Safra Ag helps you value the excess nutrients in your soil through a simple three-step process.

  1. Soil Sampling and Mapping

    A skilled specialist will gather samples from diverse areas of your farmland. These collected specimens will undergo lab testing to ascertain the nutrient makeup of your soil.
  2. Establishing Nutrient Values:

    With the nutrient profile of your soil established, we’ll calculate the market value of these nutrients. This is achieved by referencing current market rates for comparable fertilizer compositions.
  3. Generating a Comprehensive Report:

    We will compile a thorough report detailing the soil sample procedure, results of nutrient analysis, and market value of surplus soil fertility. This document is key for validating proof with the IRS.
