Tax code

To all ECI’s Members,

Congress and the President recently passed a bill changing the tax code. A provision of the tax bill applies to grain sold by a farmer to a cooperative. There a several different interpretations of how this provision will be applied and the impact of this provision. At a general level, it appears that the American Farmer would have a tax reduction or benefit from selling their grain to a cooperative, such as ECI, compared to selling grain to a privately owned company. I would suggest all ECI farmer member/owners to consult with their financial advisor and/or tax professional to evaluate the impact upon their individual farming operation. As always, Thank You for your business.


Thank You,

Randy Carlholm
