Lame Duck Congress should pass tax extenders

November 7, 2014

By National Farmers Union

National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson said that tax breaks important to family farmers and ranchers need to be extended before the end of the year, and that NFU is looking forward to working with members on both sides of the aisle to solve issues important to family farmers and ranchers.

“NFU will strongly pursue the extension of expiring tax provisions for small business expensing, and renewable energy during the upcoming lame-duck session of congress,” said Johnson. “Family farmers and ranchers rely on these provisions that are critical to managing their business.”

Johnson also noted that for well over 100 years, NFU has worked with members on both sides of the aisle and looks forward to continuing this tradition into the 114th Congress.

“Many of the issues that are most important to us –Renewable Fuel Standard and the full implementation of the 2014 Farm Bill – continue to enjoy strong bipartisan support in both chambers,” said Johnson. “We are looking forward to working with the new Congress to continue to advance those issues and make continued progress for family farmers, rural America and the nation as a whole.”
