Wisconsin Farm Tax Deductions & Write-Offs

If you recently purchased or acquired farmland in Wisconsin, you may be eligible for an obscure farm tax deduction related to excess soil fertility.


You might be able to unlock significant tax savings on your new farmland! Most farmers and agriculture professionals are aware of tax deductions on structures, fencing, and irrigation, but many overlook a potential farm tax write-off related to soil fertility. Boa Safra Ag can conduct thorough soil fertility testing on your Wisconsin farmland, providing detailed reporting for your CPA to determine whether you can minimize your tax liability.

Up to $1400 savings/acre.

Establishing Burden of Proof

Who We Help

Boa Safra serves a variety of clients and channel partners.

Federal tax codes allow agricultural land purchasers to depreciate the legacy value of fertilizer ingredients that were in the soil at the time of acquisition, much in the same way as items such as irrigation equipment, fencing, or structures can be claimed as a tax deduction. To claim these farm tax deductions and write-offs, Wisconsin farmland owners must quantify the volume and value of legacy nutrients in the soil. At Boa Safra Ag, we specialize in both of these areas.

Call these guys, you will be happy you did.”
