Ohio Farm Bureau shares concerns with state tax proposals

Provisions that could prove harmful to farmers are a proposed repeal of the property tax rollback and a plan to require more smaller farmers to pay the state’s Commercial Activity Tax. Farm Bureau also is telling lawmakers of its disappointment that such significant tax changes are being rushed through in last minute budget negotiations without ample opportunity for public study and input.

OFBF delivered testimony to the Senate Ways and Means Committee, is placing phone calls and emails to legislators and is cooperating with other state farm organizations in a letter campaign.

Farm Bureau members are being encouraged to contact their lawmakers and let them know about the impact these proposed tax changes would have on their farms.
