Tax & Finance
Key Issue: Tax & Finance
Like any other small business, taxes and access to capital play a large role in the operation of family wheat farms. NAWG works to ensure that the tax system does not unduly burden farmers and that they have adequate access to working capital on their farms.
The Farm Credit System is an essential part of wheat farmers’ business plans. The ability to raise capital allows farmers to work through years without steady, predictable incomes. NAWG also works to make sure that farmers have access to risk management tools using commodity markets. Healthy markets, financial systems, and economies are fundamental to keeping wheat farmers growing wheat.
