Farmers can save taxes Many opportunities to reduce or defer paying federal income taxes are available to farmers, says a Texas Agricultural Extension Service economist. "Cash farm income often fluctuates greatly from year to year. Good financial management includes leveling taxable income to reduce or defer taxes,;" explains Dr. Wayne A. Hayenga. "Since this year is an unusually high income year for many Texas farmers, quick action can help reduce the 1973 tax bill." The first step in year-end tax planning is to determine where the farm business stands now, explains the Texas A&M University System economist. Good records make this job" much easier. First, total this year's income and expenses up to the present time. Next, estimate and include expected transactions for the rest of the year. Then, compute depreciation for buildings and equipment. Using these results, estimate the taxable income. "Depending on your findings, you may want to buy more supplies or sell less than you planned before next January 1," says Hayenga. "Farmers using the cash method of accounting who need to reduce taxable income should consider buying fertilizer, feed and other supplies for use next year. Buying fertilizer now may be an especially good move, since higher prices and tighter The Clarendon Press, November 15, Page 9 Agriculture big in Texas COLLEGE STATION -- "Agriculturally speaking, we've got a lot going for us in Texas. We've got a diversified agricultural industry that continues to grow to meet the increasing demands of consumers in this state as well as the entire nation. So, it's appropriate that we look back occasionally and reflect on the fine job our agricultural producers are doing," says Charles Baker. economist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. "That's why the month of November is dedicated to farmers and ranchers and the quality of products they produce as well as to the other people who make agriculture what it is in Texas." OfficiaUy, November is being called "Food and Fiber Appreciation Month." Just how big is Texas agriculture? a' Agriculture In all its phases--called agribusiness--adds more than $10 billion annually to the Texas economy. And agribusiness provides employment for about 30 per cent of the Texas labor force. Here are some additional striking figures. Gross farm income in Texas in 1972 totaled $4.7 billion, up 13 per cent from the previous year. However. expenses increased almost 23 per cent and totaled $3.8 billion. Thus realized net farm income was only $847.4 million. 19 per cent less than in 1971. But a boost in farm inventories put the total net farm income at 28 per cent above that of 1971. or about $1.4 billion. How does Texas shape up with the other major agricultural states in the nation? Total agricultural receipts continue to increase each year as the state is drawing a bead on the Number 1 position. However. it is still surpassed by California and lowa in the national rankings. Texas is the leading state in cattle feeding and is the top producer of cotton, grain sorghum and rice. What does all this point to? DONLEY COUNTY "We're big in agriculture and we're going to get bigger," contends Baker. "Loth domestic and foreign markets are opening new frontiers in the food and fiber production business. and we in Texas must continue to expand production and to improve our efficiency to meet these increasing demands." "What a fire!" The winter season means an ncrease in fire losses. Do not delay in having a review of your fire insurance to be certain of adequate protection for today's inflated building costs.
