Area farmers will receive tax relief. Due to late action by the President and Congress on tax matters, the tax season has been delayed with many forms necessary for farmers not yet finalized. Farmers are ordinarily required to file and pay all taxes by March 1st. The Internal Revenue Service has announced that they will provide penalty relief for farmers who request a waiver and complete their returns by April 15th. The delay stems from the enactment of the American Taxpayer Relief Act with several affected tax forms that will cause a delay with accepting and processing. Forms, instructions and tax assistance is available at IRS.gov.
