Guidelines for Donating Grain:

  • The producer should consult with his or her tax advisor to determine whether this gift is appropriate to their tax situation.
  • Specific steps are required by the IRS to ensure intended tax benefits.
  • The gift must be from unsold grain inventory – there can be no prior sale or pricing commitment.
  • The grain must be physically delivered farm commodities.
  • The grain cannot have a lien against it. If it does, a lien waiver from the lender is required.
  • The producer should call Deuel Area Development to confirm the details and complete a gift letter prior to delivering the grain.
  • We will communicate directly with the grain elevator to give instructions to sell the grain and disburse the proceeds.

Please visit with your tax accountant and/or attorney and consider this avenue this year. Thanks!

Tax Savings:

  • For many cash basis producers, significant tax savings can be achieved by donating crops directly to DADi.
  • The producer will not realize taxable income from a sale, thus minimizing taxes.
  • The producer is still able to deduct the entire cost of production on Schedule F.
  • Depending on the producer’s specific circumstances, savings may be realized on federal and state income tax and self-employment tax.
