Property Taxes on the Farm

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorOMAHA (DTN) — The big fight in the Nebraska Legislature this year is over plans to reduce property taxes, which has the state’s farm lobbies pushing lawmakers hard for some relief.Numbers taken from the 2017 Ag Census show Nebraska farmers have more reason to complain about property taxes than farmers in nearby states.Farm income nationally fell between 2012 and 2017, and land values fell in some states during that time. Property taxes nationally for farmers went up $2 billion over that five-year stretch, jumping from $7.4 billion to $9.4 billion. The average property-tax increase nationally was $21.3%. Just one state, Rhode Island, collected less in property tax from farmers and ranchers over that five-year stretch, according to the Census figures.Property taxes paid by farmers are listed among farm production expenses on a major initial data set for the 2017 Ag Census, which USDA released last week.California remains the highest state for taxing farmers’ property. In 2017, the 65,129 ranch and farm operations in California paid $1.126 billion, an average of $17,299 per farm. And California farm property taxes rose $300 million over that five-year span despite losing 6,297 farms. California property taxes paid rose 26.5% from 2012-2017.Nationally, 1.92 million farmers paid $9.4 billion worth of property taxes in 2017, up $2 billion from five years earlier, a 21.3% increase. The average property tax paid by farmers nationally was $4,902 in 2017, compared to $3,752 per farm in 2012.Texas was the second-highest state for property taxes at $698.2 million, a 20.6% hike from 2012. But those property taxes were split among 236,030 total farmers, so the average property tax paid was $2,958 per farm.Nebraska fell in as the third-highest state for property taxes in 2017 with 42,502 farmers paying $686.5 million, a 30.2% hike from 2012. On a per-farm basis, that breaks down to $16,151, second only to California.Nebraska policymakers want to reduce property taxes, but Gov. Pete Ricketts has pushed back against efforts by the nonpartisan unicameral Legislature to offset property-tax cuts with higher sales taxes or other tax hikes. Ricketts has aggressively held public events with various businesses that could be forced to tax their products or services. Farm groups, though, are part of a coalition seeking property-tax relief.“It’s the No. 1 issue in the legislative session,” said John Hansen, president of the Nebraska Farmers Union. “It’s our organization’s No. 1 issue, and I would say it is the No. 1 issue for most every ag organization I know.”More than 91% of Nebraska’s agricultural property taxes, about $625.7 million, were paid by just under 40% of the state’s larger farm and ranch operations. Those farms each reported paying more than $10,000 in property-tax expenses. The state-level data for each state breaks down farm expenses, including property taxes, into a range of reported levels.South Dakota farmers paid an average of $9,568 per farm in 2017, the third-highest rate in the nation. The 27,308 farmers in 2017 in South Dakota also saw their property taxes increase 24.6% in the five years since the 2012 Ag Census.Kansas farmers saw their property taxes increase 29.7% during that time — the third-highest jump in percentage — as they paid an average of $5,831 in property taxes.Illinois farmers also saw a 25.5% hike in their property taxes from 2012-2017 to an average of $6,379 per farm.Iowa farmers collectively pay the fourth-most property taxes by state at $538.3 million, or an average of $8,589 for the 79,926 farmers on the 2017 Ag Census. Iowa property taxes rose 18.7% over that time.Ohio farmers paid $411.7 million, which comes out to an average of $5,518 per farm. But Ohio farmers saw the largest increase in property taxes by percentage over the five years of the Ag Census. Property taxes for the 74,609 Buckeye farmers rose nearly 43% from 2012.Alaska, Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii and Nevada collected the smallest amount of overall property taxes in the country. According to the Ag Census, Rhode Island was the only state to see a decline in property taxes, collecting 6.7% less from farm operations than 2012. Of the smallest states with farm property taxes, though, Rhode Island government entities collected an average of $7,419 per farm.The 2017 Census of Agriculture: https://www.nass.usda.gov/… Chris Clayton can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(ES/AG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Weekly Wrapup: Topic Trackers, Facebook Privacy, Mobile Web Sensors, And More…

first_imgTags:#web#Weekly Wrap-ups Why France and Germany Got it Right: IE Must Go It looks like Microsoft has moved to the “sticks and stones” method for handling public relations gaffes. As we reported earlier this week, France joined Germany in suggesting that its citizens switch from Internet Explorer to, well, anything else. Now, Microsoft’s UK security chief, Cliff Evans, has responded by saying that switching to other browsers will only open you up to more security vulnerabilities than staying with Internet Explorer.That’s saying a lot for the browser implicated in the Great Google Caper of 2010; and we have multiple security experts who have said a lot on why it just isn’t true.SEE MORE WEB PRODUCTS COVERAGE IN OUR PRODUCTS CATEGORYThat’s a wrap for another week! Enjoy your weekend everyone. In this edition of the Weekly Wrapup – our newsletter summarizing the top stories of the week – we continue our analysis of Facebook’s sweeping new privacy policies (plus tell you how to protect yourself), explore how mobile phones and sensors are mixing, look at the launch of the U.K. government’s data.gov website, present our categorized list of the leading topic tracking tools, and more. And as usual we check in on our two main channels: ReadWriteStart (our daily resource for entrepreneurs) and ReadWriteEnterprise (devoted to ‘enterprise 2.0’ trends and products). Also read on for details about the newly released printed edition of our current premium report, about the Real-Time Web.Now Available: Printed Edition of The Real-Time Web ReportAt the request of the librarian community and people that just like paper, we have made The Real-Time Web and its Future report available in print.For those of you that prefer it digitally, you can still download it.Don’t forget about our Community Management Report. It too is coming in print soon, so watch out for it!Web TrendsThe Facebook Privacy Debate: What You Need to Know Facebook changed the world by helping 350 million people publish their thoughts, feelings, comments, photos, videos and shared links much more easily than ever before. It’s the King of social networking.The network grew with a big promise of privacy at the center of what it offered: your information was by default visible only to people you approved as friends. In December that changed, in a fundamental way. We offer in this post a summary of the changes that were made and key highlights from the debate that’s raging around the world about privacy, public information and Facebook.2010 Trend: Sensors & Mobile Phones Last week in our Mobile Web Meets Internet of Things series, we looked at barcode scanning and RFID in the next generation iPhone. We expect to see Apple and Android battling it out for both barcode and RFID supremacy this year.Another key technology in the Internet of Things – where everyday objects are endowed with Internet connectivity – is sensors. In fact we’ve seen the most activity so far in the Internet of Things from sensor data. So in this post we explore how mobile phones and sensors are mixing; and what to expect in 2010.UK Launches Open Data Site; Puts Data.gov to Shame A new website dedicated to making non-personal data held by the U.K. government available for software developers has launched with the help of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. Data.gov.uk is being slammed with traffic but six months after the U.S. government opened its Data.gov site the U.K. site already has more than three times as much data than the U.S. site offers today.At launch, Data.gov.uk has nearly 3,000 data sets available for developers to build mashups with. The U.S. site, Data.gov, has less than 1,000 data sets today.Open Thread: There’s No Such Thing As Free Content So why do users keep expecting to consume it, reuse it, share it and store it without paying for it?Someone, somewhere ends up putting out money for everything you do online, every piece of news you read, every Web app you use. It takes professionals and hardware across a gigantic industry to make these things work. In terms of overhead alone, content costs a lot. So why do some users always kick and scream at the first suggestion of paid content? Do you think content is worth paying for, and if so, what are you personally willing to pay?SEE MORE WEB TRENDS COVERAGE IN OUR TRENDS CATEGORYReadWriteStart Our channel ReadWriteStart, sponsored by Microsoft BizSpark, is dedicated to profiling startups and entrepreneurs.Startup Finance: Xero Powers Accounting in the Cloud When New Zealand-based entrepreneur Rod Drury began researching his market he could hardly believe what he was seeing. As seen in Drury’s comments last week on the state of the online finance ecosystem, only a handful of players like Saasu and MYOB were targeting small business clients. While Drury saw that a number of cloud-based personal finance companies like Mint were gaining traction with users, small businesses had been stuck with the same tired desktop accounting software they’d been using for the last ten years. Drury built Xero with the intent to help small businesses manage their accounts in the cloud.Never Mind the Valley: Here’s Austin Settled in the 1830s along the banks of the Colorado River and named for the Father of Texas Stephen F. Austin, the city of Austin is known for its thriving music scene and as the home of the University of Texas (UT) Longhorns. But in the past few decades, the Texas capital has built up a reputation of a different sort.With companies headquartered in Austin like Dell and Freescale Semiconductor, a spin-off of Motorola, the city has become a hotbed of information technology hardware and software. In the mid 1990s, Austin was put on the map by software companies like Motive, Vignette and Tivoli, the latter of which was quickly scooped up by IBM in 1996.SEE MORE STARTUPS COVERAGE IN OUR READWRITESTART CHANNELReadWriteEnterprise Our channel ReadWriteEnterprise, devoted to ‘enterprise 2.0’ and using social software inside organizations. richard macmanus 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting IBM’s Project Vulcan: The Next Generation of Lotus Notes and a Rival To Google Wave William Shatner opened the IBM Lotusphere event this week, after which IBM launched Project Vulcan.

So to help you out, we’ve selected and categorized the leading topic tracking tools. This is based on the discussion that arose from our earlier post about topic feeds, which are RSS feeds for keywords or phrases.During the process of analyzing these topic tracking tools, we discovered – to our surprise – that not many of these services output results as RSS. Some of the leading apps in this field require users to visit their service. With that in mind, here is our full list and analysis.The 3 Facebook Settings Every User Should Check Now In December, Facebook made a series of bold and controversial changes regarding the nature of its users’ privacy on the social networking site. The company once known for protecting privacy to the point of exclusivity (it began its days as a network for college kids only – no one else even had access), now seemingly wants to compete with more open social networks like the microblogging media darling Twitter.Those of you who edited your privacy settings prior to December’s change have nothing to worry about – that is, assuming you elected to keep your personalized settings when prompted by Facebook’s “transition tool.” The tool, a dialog box explaining the changes, appeared at the top of Facebook homepages this past month with its own selection of recommended settings. Unfortunately, most Facebook users likely opted for the recommended settings without really understanding what they were agreeing to. If you did so, you may now be surprised to find that you inadvertently gave Facebook the right to publicize your private information including status updates, photos, and shared links. Want to change things back? Read on to find out how.Twitter’s Growth Slows Dramatically After news about the landing of US Airways 1549 in the Hudson first broke on Twitter in January 2009, the microblogging service quickly captured the imagination of a new group of potential users. Throughout the first months of 2009, Twitter grew at a rapid pace, peaking at a growth rate of 13% in March 2009.Now, however, according to the latest data from HubSpot, Twitter’s growth is slowing dramatically. In October 2009, Twitter’s growth rate had fallen to 3.5%. On a positive note, though, the average active user on Twitter today is more engaged than six months ago. last_img read more

It is enough that (Paul) Pogba and (Alexis) Sanchez regain their level to change the face of the team. This is the worst news for Paris. There may also be recruits this winter too. “After, PSG is strong and has taken steps. It remains a lower strength than that of PSG. A coach can change a squad.

MISC Kicks Off FSO Benchamas 2 Conversion Project

first_imgzoom MISC Berhad, a subsidiary of Petronas, has marked the start of the floating, storage and offloading (FSO) Benchamas 2 conversion project with the arrival of the donor vessel at MMHE West Yard, Pasir Gudang, Malaysia. The arrival of Bunga Kelana 5 as the donor vessel for this project is a key milestone in the FSO Benchamas 2 journey, MISC said. The vessel which has been operated by AET Tankers is a 105,400 dwt Aframax tanker that was built in March 1999.Bunga Kelana 5 was identified as the most suitable vessel to be converted into an FSO due to her features that allow for technical upgrades and integrations to fit the weather conditions of Chevron Offshore (Thailand) Limited’s (COTL) Benchamas field in the Gulf of Thailand.Once the conversion works are completed, the FSO will mark MISC’s entry into Thailand’s offshore oil and gas market.With the project management team on site and ready for the commencement of the conversion works, the FSO Benchamas 2 project is expected to be completed for its sail away in the first quarter of 2018. Upon successful conversion and delivery, it will be deployed for a full field development project for COTL.MISC’s contract with  COTL is valued at approximately USD 230 million for a duration of 10 years, with COTL having the right to extend up to 5 extensions of one year each. The project is undertaken by MISC’s fully owned subsidiary, MISC Offshore Floating Terminals (L) Limited (MOFT).last_img read more
