REPORT OF PAYMENTS TO PRODUCERS

Producers that received program payments during calendar year 2017 will receive form IRS-1099-G detailing payments producers have received from the Commodity Credit Corporation.  The annual report of program payments is a service intended to help our customers report taxable income.  It is not intended to replace producer’s responsibilities to report income to IRS.  The mailing of form IRS-1099-G will occur in late January 2018.  CCC will not issue a 1099-G form when CCC program payments total less than $600.  Producers which receive program payments from multiple counties will receive only one 1099-G showing all payments from all counties.  FSA staff cannot interpret IRS regulations or advise producers about which payments to report on their income tax returns.  However, county office staff can review payments for accuracy.  Refund information is not shown on the 1099-G.

2017 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE

Producers are encouraged to complete the 2017 Census of Agriculture as it assists in decisions that are made concerning American Agriculture.  It is a producer’s voice, future, and opportunity.  For more information about the 2017 Census of Agriculture, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov or call (800) 727-9540
