Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law yesterday (4/17) a bill (SB 265) containing tax provisions important to the state's livestock industry. Language in the bill, supported by KLA through the legislative process, deals with the income tax treatment on sales of breeding stock and a sales tax incentive for new and expanding livestock facilities. 

The income tax provision will allow livestock producers to offset capital gains from the sale of breeding livestock, including cull cows, with schedule C, E and F ordinary income losses. This change is applicable starting with the 2013 tax year, but producers will need to wait until after July 1 to file an amended 2013 return.

Also included is a sales tax incentive for the expansion or reconditioning of livestock facilities. If a producer invests at least $50,000 in the construction, upgrade or expansion of a livestock facility after July 1, 2014, purchase of the materials will be exempt from sales tax.

These important provisions of SB 265 will become law July 1, 2014.
