Filers of Forms 1041, 1065, and 1065-B
Do not complete the block labeled "Social security number (SSN)." Instead, enter your employer identification number (EIN) on line D.
Lines A and B
On line A, enter your principal crop or activity for the current year.
On line B, enter one of the 14 principal agricultural activity codes listed in Part IV on page 2 of Schedule F. Select the code that best describes the source of most of your income.
If you use the cash method, check the box labeled “Cash.” Generally, report income in the year in which you actually or constructively received it and deduct expenses in the year you paid them. Complete Parts I and II of Schedule F.
If you use the accrual method, check the box labeled “Accrual.” Generally, report income in the year in which you earned it and deduct expenses in the year you incurred them, even if you did not pay them in that year. Complete Parts II, III, and line 11 of Schedule F.
Other rules apply that determine the timing of deductions based on economic performance. See Pub. 538 for details.
Farming syndicates cannot use the cash method of accounting. A farming syndicate may be a partnership, any other noncorporate group, or an S corporation if:
You need an employer identification number (EIN) only if you had a Keogh plan or were required to file an employment, excise, estate, trust, partnership, or alcohol, tobacco, and firearms tax return. If you need an EIN, file Form SS-4. If you do not have an EIN, leave line D blank. Do not enter your SSN.
Material Participation. For the definition of material participation for purposes of the passive activity rules, see the instructions for Schedule C (Form 1040), line G, on page C-2. If you meet any of the material participation tests described in the line G instructions for Schedule C, check the "Yes" box.
If you are a retired or disabled farmer, you are treated as materially participating in a farming business if you materially participated 5 of the 8 years preceding your retirement or disability. Also, a surviving spouse is treated as materially participating in a farming activity if the real property used for farming meets the estate tax rules for special valuation of farm property passed from a qualifying decedent, and the surviving spouse actively manages the farm.
Check the "No" box if you did not materially participate. If you checked "No" and you have a loss from this business, see Limit on Losses below. If you have a profit from this business activity but have current year losses from other passive activities or prior year unallowed passive activity losses, see the instructions for Form 8582.
Limit on Losses. If you checked the "No" box on line E and you have a loss from this business, you may have to use Form 8582 to figure your allowable loss, if any, to enter on Schedule F, line 36. Generally, you can deduct losses from passive activities only to the extent of income from passive activities. For details, see Pub. 925.
Part I. Farm Income—Cash Method
In Part I, show income received for items listed on lines 1 through 10. Generally, count both the cash actually or constructively received and the fair market value of goods or other property received for these items. Income is constructively received when it is credited to your account or set aside for you to use. However, farm production flexibility contract payments received under the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 are required to be included in income only in the year of actual receipt, even if they were constructively received in an earlier year under section 112(d)(2) or (3) of that Act.
If you ran the farm yourself and received rents based on farm production or crop shares, report these rents as income on line 4.
Sales of Livestock Because of Weather-Related Conditions
If you sold livestock because of a drought, flood, or other weather-related conditions, you can elect to report the income from the sale in the year after the year of sale if all of the following apply:
Forms 1099 or CCC-1099-G
If you received Forms 1099 or CCC-1099-G showing
amounts paid to you, first determine if the amounts are to be included with
farm income. Then, use the following chart to determine where to report the
income on Schedule F. Include the Form 1099 or CCC-1099-G amounts with any other
income reported on that line.
|Information return||Where to report|
|Form 1099-PATR||Line 5a|
|Form 1099-A||Line 7b|
(for crop insurance)
|Forms 1099-G or CCC-1099-G (for disaster payments)||Line 8a|
|Forms 1099-G or CCC-1099-G (for other agricultural program payments)||Line 6a|
You may also receive Form 1099-MISC for other types of income. In this case, report it on whichever line best describes the income. For example, if you received a Form 1099-MISC for custom farming work, include this amount on line 9, "Custom hire (machine work) income."
Lines 1 and 2
On line 1, show amounts received from sales of livestock and other items bought for resale. On line 2, show the cost or other basis of the livestock and other items you actually sold.
Show amounts received from sales of livestock, produce, grains, and other products you raised.
Lines 5a and 5b
If you received distributions from a cooperative in 2007, you should receive Form 1099-PATR. On line 5a, show your total distributions from cooperatives. This includes patronage dividends, nonpatronage distributions, per-unit retain allocations, and redemption of nonqualified notices and per-unit retain allocations.
Show patronage dividends (distributions) received in cash, and the dollar amount of qualified written notices of allocation. If you received property as patronage dividends, report the fair market value of the property as income. Include cash advances received from a marketing cooperative. If you received per-unit retains in cash, show the amount of cash. If you received qualified per-unit retain certificates, show the stated dollar amount of the certificate.
Do not include as income on line 5b patronage dividends from buying personal or family items, capital assets, or depreciable assets. Enter these amounts on line 5a only. If you do not report patronage dividends from these items as income, you must subtract the amount of the dividend from the cost or other basis of these items.
Lines 6a and 6b
Enter on line 6a the total of the following amounts:
These amounts are government payments you received, usually reported to you on Form 1099-G. You may also receive Form CCC-1099-G from the Department of Agriculture showing the amounts and types of payments made to you.
On line 6b, report only the taxable amount. For example, do not report the market gain shown on Form CCC-1099-G on line 6b if you elected to report CCC loan proceeds as income in the year received (see lines 7a through 7c below). No gain results from redemption of the commodity because you previously reported the CCC loan proceeds as income. You are treated as repurchasing the commodity for the amount of the loan repayment. However, if you did not report the CCC loan proceeds under the election, you must report the market gain on line 6b.
Lines 7a Through 7c
Commodity Credit Corporation Loans. Generally, you do not report CCC loan proceeds as income. However, if you pledge part or all of your production to secure a CCC loan, you may elect to report the loan proceeds as income in the year you receive them, instead of the year you sell the crop. If you make this election (or made the election in a prior year), report loan proceeds you received in 2007 on line 7a. Attach a statement to your return showing the details of the loan(s).
Forfeited CCC Loans. Include the full amount forfeited on line 7b, even if you reported the loan proceeds as income.
If you did not elect to report the loan proceeds as income, also include the forfeited amount on line 7c.
If you did elect to report the loan proceeds as income, you generally will not have an entry on line 7c. But if the amount forfeited is different from your basis in the commodity, you may have an entry on line 7c.
See Pub. 225 for details on the tax consequences of electing to report CCC loan proceeds as income or forfeiting CCC loans,
Lines 8a Through 8d
In general, you must report crop insurance proceeds in the year you receive them. Federal crop disaster payments are treated as crop insurance proceeds. However, if 2007 was the year of damage, you may elect to include certain proceeds in income for 2007. To make this election, check the box on line 8c and attach a statement to your return. See Pub. 225 for a description of the proceeds for which an election may be made and for what you must include in your statement.
Generally, if you elect to defer any eligible crop insurance proceeds, you must defer all such crop insurance proceeds (including Federal disaster payments).
Enter on line 8a the TOTAL crop insurance proceeds you received in 2007, even if you elect to include them in income for 2007.
Enter on line 8b the taxable amount of the proceeds you received in 2007. Do not include proceeds you elect to include in income for 2007.
Enter on line 8d the amount, if any, of crop insurance proceeds you received in 2006 and elected to include in income for 2007.
Use this line to report income not shown on lines 1 through 9. For example, include the following income items on line 10:
Caution: For property acquired and hedging positions established, you must clearly identify on your books and records both the hedging transaction and the item(s) or aggregate risk that is being hedged.
Purchase or sales contracts are not true hedges if they offset losses that already occurred. If you bought or sold commodity futures with the hope of making a profit due to favorable price changes, report the profit or loss on Form 6781 instead of this line.
Part II. Farm Expenses
Do not deduct the following:
If you were repaid for any part of an expense, you must subtract the amount you were repaid from the deduction.
Capitalizing Costs of Property. If you produced real or tangible personal property or acquired property for resale, certain expenses must be included in inventory costs or capitalized. These expenses include the direct costs of the property and the share of any indirect costs allocable to that property. However, these rules generally do not apply to:
Note: Exceptions 1 and 2 above do not apply to tax shelters, farm syndicates, or partnerships required to use the accrual method of accounting under Internal Revenue Code section 447 or 448.
But you may be able to deduct rather than capitalize the expenses of producing a plant with a preproductive period of more than 2 years. See Election To Deduct Certain Preproductive Period Expenses below.
Do not reduce your deductions on lines 12 through 34e by the preproductive period expenses you are required to capitalize. Instead, enter the total amount capitalized in parentheses on line 34f. See Preproductive Period Expenses for more details.
If you revoked an election made before 1989 to deduct preproductive period expenses for animals, you must continue to apply the alternative depreciation rules to property placed in service while your election was in effect. Also, the expenses you previously chose to deduct will have to be recaptured as ordinary income when you dispose of the animals.
Election To Deduct Certain Preproductive Period Expenses. If the pre-productive period of any plant you produce is more than 2 years, you may choose to currently deduct the expenses rather than capitalize them. But you may not make this election for the costs of planting or growing citrus or almond groves that are incurred before the end of the 4th tax year beginning with the tax year you planted them in their permanent grove. By deducting the preproductive period expenses for which you may make this election, you are treated as having made the election.
Note: In the case of a partnership or S corporation, the election must be made by the partner or shareholder. This election may not be made by tax shelters, farm syndicates, or partners in partnerships required to use the accrual method of accounting under Internal Revenue Code section 447 or 448.
If you make the election to deduct preproductive expenses for plants, any gain you realize when disposing of the plants is ordinary income up to the amount of the preproductive expenses you deducted. Also, the alternative depreciation rules apply to property placed in service in any tax year your election is in effect. Unless you obtain the consent of the IRS, you must make this election for the first tax year in which you engage in a farming business involving the production of property subject to the capitalization rules. You may not revoke this election without the consent of the IRS.
For details, see Pub. 225.
Prepaid Farm Supplies. Generally, if you use the cash method of accounting and your prepaid farm supplies are more than 50% of your other deductible farm expenses, your deduction for those supplies may be limited. Prepaid farm supplies include expenses for feed, seed, fertilizer, and similar farm supplies not used or consumed during the year. They also include the cost of poultry that would be allowable as a deduction in a later tax year if you were to (a) capitalize the cost of poultry bought for use in your farm business and deduct it ratably over the lesser of 12 months or the useful life of the poultry and (b) deduct the cost of poultry bought for resale in the year you sell or otherwise dispose of it.
If the limit applies, you can deduct prepaid farm supplies that do not exceed 50% of your other deductible farm expenses in the year of payment. You can deduct the excess only in the year you use or consume the supplies (other than poultry, which is deductible as explained above). For exceptions and more details on these rules, see Pub. 225.
You can deduct the actual expenses of running your
car or truck, or take the standard mileage rate. You may use the standard mileage
rate even if you lease your vehicle. You must use actual expenses if
you used more than one vehicle simultaneously in your business (such as in fleet
You cannot use actual expenses for a leased vehicle if you previously used the standard mileage rate for that vehicle.
You can use the standard mileage rate for 2006 only if:
If you deduct actual expenses:
If you choose to take the standard mileage rate multiply the number of business miles by 36 cents. Add to this amount your parking fees and tolls, and enter the total on line 12. Do not deduct depreciation, rent or lease payments, or your actual operating expenses.
If you claim any car or truck expenses (actual or the standard mileage rate), you must provide the information requested in Part V of Form 4562. Be sure to attach Form 4562 to your return.
For details, seePub. 463.
Deductible soil and water conservation expenses generally are those that are paid to conserve soil and water or to prevent erosion of land used for farming. These expenses include (but are not limited to) the cost of leveling, grading and terracing, contour furrowing, the construction, control, and protection of diversion channels, drainage ditches, earthen dams, watercourses, outlets and ponds, the eradication of brush, and the planting of windbreaks.
These expenses can be deducted only if they are consistent with a conservation plan approved by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) of the Department of Agriculture for the area in which your land is located. If no plan exists, the expenses must be consistent with a plan of a comparable state agency. You cannot deduct the expenses if they were paid or incurred for land used in farming in a foreign country.
Do not deduct expenses you pay or incur to drain or fill wetlands, to prepare land for center pivot irrigation systems, or to clear land.
Your deduction may not exceed 25% of your gross income from farming (excluding certain gains from selling assets such as farm machinery and land). If your conservation expenses are more than the limit, the excess may be carried forward and deducted in later tax years. However, the amount deductible for any 1 year may not exceed the 25% gross income limit for that year.
For details, see Pub. 225.
Enter amounts paid for custom hire or machine work (the machine operator furnished the equipment).
Do not include amounts paid for rental or lease of equipment that you operated yourself. You should report those amounts on line 26a.
You can deduct depreciation of buildings, improvements, cars and trucks, machinery, and other farm equipment of a permanent nature.
Do not deduct depreciation on your home, furniture or other personal items, land, livestock you bought or raised for resale, or other property in your inventory.
You may also choose under Internal Revenue Code section 179 to expense a portion of the cost of certain tangible property you bought in 2006 for use in your business.
For more details, including when you must complete and attach Form 4562, see the instructions for Schedule C line 13, on line 13, on page C-4.
Deduct contributions to employee benefit programs that are not an incidental part of a pension or profit-sharing plan included on line 25. Examples are accident and health plans, group-term life insurance, and dependent care assistance programs.
Do not include on line 17 any contributions you made on your behalf as a self-employed person to an accident and health plan or for group-term life insurance. You may be able to deduct on Form 1040, line 30, part of the amount you paid for health insurance on behalf of yourself, your spouse, and dependents even if you do not itemize your deductions. See the instructions for Form 1040, page 30 for details.
If you use the cash method, you cannot deduct when paid the cost of feed your livestock will consume in a later year unless you meet all of the following tests.
If you meet all of these
tests, you can deduct the prepaid feed, which is subject to the overall limit
for Prepaid Farm Supplies explained on page F-4. If you do not meet
all of these tests, you can deduct the prepaid feed only in the year it is consumed.
Do not include the cost of transportation incurred in purchasing livestock held for resale as freight paid. Instead, add these costs to the cost of the livestock, and deduct them when the livestock is sold.
Deduct on this line premiums paid for farm business insurance. Deduct on line 17 amounts paid for employee accident and health insurance. Amounts credited to a reserve for self-insurance or premiums paid for a policy that pays for your lost earnings due to sickness or disability are not deductible.
Lines 23a and 23b
Interest Allocation Rules. The tax treatment of interest expense differs depending on its type. For example, home mortgage interest and investment interest are treated differently. "Interest allocation" rules require you to allocate (classify) your interest expense so it is deducted on the correct line of your return and gets the right tax treatment. These rules could affect how much interest you are allowed to deduct on Schedule F.
Generally, you allocate interest expense by tracing how the proceeds of the loan are used. See Pub. 535 for details.
If you paid interest on a debt secured by your main home and any of the proceeds from that debt were used in your farming business, see Pub. 535 to figure the amount that is deductible on Schedule F.
How To Report If you have a mortgage on real property used in your farming business (other than your main home), enter on line 23a the interest you paid for 2007 to banks or other financial institutions for which you received a Form 1098 (or similar statements). If you did not receive a Form 1098, enter the interest on line 23b..
If you paid more mortgage interest than is shown on Form 1098 or similar statement, see Pub. 535 to find out if you can deduct the additional interest. If you can, enter the amount on line 23a. Attach a statement to your return explaining the difference and write "See attached" in the left margin next to line 23a.
If you and at least one other person (other than your spouse if you file a joint return) were liable for and paid interest on the mortgage and the other person received the Form 1098, report your share of the interest on line 23b. Attach a statement to your return showing the name and address of the person who received the Form 1098. In the left margin next to line 23b, write "See attached."
Do not deduct interest you prepaid in 2007 for later years; include only the part that applies to 2007.
Enter the amounts you paid for farm labor. Do not include amounts paid to yourself. Reduce your deduction by the current year credits claimed on:
Count the cost of boarding farm labor but not the value of any products they used from the farm. Count only what you paid household help to care for farm laborers.
Caution: If you provided taxable fringe benefits to your employees, such as personal use of a car, do not include in farm labor the amounts you depreciated or deducted elsewhere.
Enter your deduction for
contributions to employee pension, profit-sharing, or annuity plans. If the
plan included you as a selfemployed person, enter contributions made
as an employer on your behalf on Form 1040, line 31, not on Schedule F.
Generally, you must file
the applicable form listed below if you maintain a pension, profit-sharing,
or other funded-deferred compensation plan. The filing requirement
is not affected by whether or not the plan qualified under the Internal Revenue Code, or whether or not you claim a deduction for the current tax year. There is a penalty for
failure to timely file these forms.
Form 5500. File this form for a plan that is not a one-participant plan (see below).
Form 5500-EZ. File this form for a oneparticipant plan. A one-participant plan is a plan that only covers you (or you and your spouse). For details, see Pub. 560.
Lines 26a and 26b
If you rented or leased vehicles, machinery, or equipment, enter on line 26a the business portion of your rental cost. But if you leased a vehicle for a term of 30 days or more, you may have to reduce your deduction by an inclusion amount. For details, see the instructions for Schedule C (Form 1040), lines 20a and 20b, on page C-5.
Enter on line 26b amounts paid to rent or lease other property such as pasture or farm land.
Enter amounts you paid for repairs and maintenance of farm buildings, machinery, and equipment. You can also include what you paid for tools of short life or minimal cost, such as shovels and rakes.
Do not deduct repairs or maintenance on your home.
You may deduct the following taxes on this line:
Do not deduct on this line:
Enter amounts you paid
for gas, electricity, water, etc., for business use on the farm. Do not
include personal utilities. You cannot deduct the base rate (including taxes)
of the first telephone line into your residence, even if you use it for
your farming business. But you can deduct expenses you paid for your farming business that are more
than the cost of the base rate for the first phone line. For example, if you had a second phone line, you can deduct the business percentage of the charges for that line, including the base rate charges.
Lines 34a Through 34f
Include all ordinary and necessary farm expenses not deducted elsewhere on Schedule F, such as advertising, office supplies, etc. Do not include fines or penalties paid to a government for violating any law.
Amortization. You can amortize qualifying forestation and reforestation costs over an 84-month period. You can also amortize certain business startup costs over a period of at least 60 months. For more details, see Pub. 535. For amortization that begins in 2007, you must complete and attach Form 4562.
At-Risk Loss Deduction. Any loss from this activity that was not allowed as a deduction last year because of the at-risk rules is treated as a deduction allocable to this activity in 2007.
Bad Debts. See the instructions for Schedule C, line 9, on page C-3.
Business Use of Your Home. You may be able to deduct certain expenses for business use of your home, subject to limitations. Use the worksheet in Pub. 587 to figure your allowable deduction. Do not use Form 8829.
Deduction for Clean-Fuel Vehicles and Clean-Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property. You may deduct part of the cost of qualified clean-fuel vehicle property used in your business and qualified clean-fuel vehicle refueling property. See Pub. 535 for more details.
Legal and Professional Fees. You can deduct on this line fees for tax advice related to your farm business and for preparation of the tax forms related to your farm business.
Travel, Meals, and Entertainment. Generally, you can deduct expenses for farm business travel and 50% of your business meals and entertainment. But there are exceptions and limitations. See the instructions for Schedule C (Form 1040), lines 24a through 24c, on page C-5.
Preproductive Period Expenses. Enter in parentheses on line 34f, preproductive period expenses that are capitalized. If you had preproductive period expenses in 2007 and you decided to capitalize these expenses, you must enter the total of these expenses in parentheses on line 34f and write "263A" in the space to the left of the total.
If you entered an amount in parentheses on line 34f because you have pre-productive period expenses you are capitalizing, subtract the amount on line 34f from the total of lines 12 through 34e. Enter the result on line 35.
For more information, see Capitalizing Costs of Property on page F-3 and Pub. 225.
If you have a loss, the amount of loss you can deduct this year may be limited. Go on to line 37 before entering your loss on line 36. If you answered "No" to Question E on Schedule F, also see the Instructions for Form 8582. Enter the net profit or deductible loss here and on Form 1040, line 18, and Schedule SE, line 1. Estates and trusts should enter the net profit or deductible loss here and on Form 1041, line 6. Partnerships should stop here and enter the profit or loss on this line and on Form 1065, line 5 (or Form 1065-B, line 7).
If you have a net profit on line 36, this amount is earned income and may qualify you for the earned income credit if you meet certain conditions. See the Instructions for Form 1040, line 64, for details.
At-Risk Rules. Generally, if you have (a) a loss from a farming activity and (b) amounts in the activity for which you are not at risk, you will have to complete Form 6198 to figure your allowable loss. The at-risk rules generally limit the amount of loss (including loss on the disposition of assets) you can claim to the amount you could actually lose in the activity.
Check box 37b if you have amounts for which you are not at risk in this activity, such as the following:
If all amounts are at risk in this business, check box 37a and enter your loss on line 36. But if you answered "No" to Question E, you may need to complete Form 8582 to figure your allowable loss to enter on line 36. See the Instructions for Form 8582 for more details.
If you checked box 37b, get Form 6198 to determine the amount of your deductible loss and enter that amount on line 36. But if you answered "No" to Question E, your loss may be further limited. See the Instructions for Form 8582. If your at-risk amount is zero or less, enter zero on line 36. Be sure to attach Form 6198 to your return. If you checked box 37b and you fail to attach Form 6198, the processing of your tax return may be delayed.
Any loss from this activity not allowed for 2006 because of the at-risk rules is treated as a deduction allocable to the activity in 2007.
For more details, see Pub. 925. Also, see the Instructions for Form 6198.
Part III. Farm Income—Accrual Method
If you use the accrual method, report farm income when you earn it, not when you receive it. Generally, you must include animals and crops in your inventory if you use this method. See Pub. 538 for exceptions, inventory methods, how to change methods of accounting, and for rules that require certain costs to be capitalized or included in inventory.
Enter the amount earned from the sale of livestock, produce, grains, and other products you raised.
Lines 39a Through 41c
See the instructions for lines 5a through 7c.
See the instructions for line 10.
The principal agricultural activity (PAA) codes in Part IV of Schedule F are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), which was developed by the statistical agencies of Canada, Mexico, and the United States in cooperation with the Office of Management and Budget. The NAICS-based codes replace the PAA codes previously based on the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system.
