FARM TO FOOD BANK
Farm to Food Bank Tax Credit
The West Virginia Senate passed Senate Bill 399 which creates a tax credit for farmers who choose to donate their products to one of the state’s food banks.
Under the provisions of the bill, a “farming taxpayer” who derives more than $1,000 per year of income from fruits, vegetables, beef, poultry, pork, fish, or any other edible product raised in West Virginia is eligible to receive a credit for his or her donations to a nonprofit food program operating in the state.
This bill became effective Dec. 31, 2017, allowing farmers to receive tax credit equal to 10 percent of the donated product up to $200,000 per year.
