At least one U.S. Congressman is not supportive of Adjusted Gross Income limits for farms. Representative Rodney Davis of Taylorville says it makes unneeded changes:
Adjusted Gross Income can directly impact the deductions and credits a farmer eligible for—which can wind up reducing the amount of taxable income they report on a tax return. Deductions include farm expenses, the cost of self-employed health insurance, one-half of the self-employment tax and contributions to retirement accounts. The Obama Administration supports lowering the AGI limit to $200,000.
