Did you know that farmers can donate grain directly to Faith United Church of Christ? For many cash basis farmers, significant tax savings can be achieved by donating crops directly to Faith United Church of Christ.
Cash charitable contributions are deductible only as an itemized deduction from adjusted gross income which results in reducing federal income tax only. Many farmers do not itemize deductions because the standard deduction has greatly increased over the years.
By contributing crops to Faith United Church of Christ, the cash basis farmer avoids having to include the sale of the cash crop in income, which results in savings self-employment tax, federal income tax, and state income tax.
Another great benefit of donating grain is the fact that it doesn't matter if the donation is made in the year of production or a later year. The only requirement is that control of the grain is given to the the church.
The farmer should always consult with his or her professional tax or legal advisors to determine tax implications prior to making the gift. Because of rapid changes in tax law, information provided here may be obsolete.
