So let me get this straight........

Yes Clayton, the money my Iowa farm operation makes is taxed under the Iowa State Tax Rate, and yes they have a state tax. I also have MN income from doing some free-lance investory accounting and that is taxed under MN. So I have income from both Iowa and MN. Also I have given/gifted my 3 kids some of my farmland, it is in one of there Trust Accounts. The farmland I have gifted them (As you know you are allowed to gift your kids so much money or farmland per year without a tax). Anyway, I pay my kids $400/acre in cash-rent on the farmland I gifted them and they are taxed by Iowa on this cash-rent income. I in turn take this farmland and add it into my acres I Custom Farm and these too are taxed under Iowa (Looks like these Custom Farmed acres will produce a $812/acre profit, minus the $400/acre cash-rent I pay the kids, for my profit of $412/acre on this kids farmland). I get the raw end of the deal on this with the kids, I gave them the Iowa farmland for free, and then I have to pay the kids $400/acre in cash-rent to farm the land myself. I got screwed on that Estate Planning deal!!!!! LOL



Thanks guys for the compliments!!!!!! Been out driving my wife's brand new Lexus SUV today. It's a really nice car, and as quiet as a Library inside. Never realized how quiet a car could be inside, must be built really good to be that quiet. Anyway, she really likes her new Lexus SUV. It was worth every penny of the $63,000 I paid for it. When you got over $750/acre in profits for the 2012 crop year, you have money to burn. I have 1,575 acres so 1,575 * $750/acre in profit= $1,181,250 for a 2012 Total overall farm operation profit. Yes, believe this is the first time I made over a $1 Million Dollar for just 1 crop year. I am finally playing with the Big Boys and it's a darn good feeling to buy just about anything the family wants or pay a $120,000/year in college tuition costs for 3 kids to attend private colleges.

I march to my own drummer, I own my own farmland and I am the one who paid for it. So with that said, he who owns the land is the one who holds the cards. I also am the one who pays the salary of my employees/Custom Guys of over $240,000 per year. So, I don't take abuse or even care what you say. There is no way in hell that you can take away my $812.50/acre profit from me, so I could care less about what you say at all. Now, if you try and take my $812.50/acre net profit from the 2012 crop year away from me, then I would get upset. Till you can do that, I just consider you to be a little bee is all, something to step on and crush since you lack anyway to take my families net income away. So, since you can not get at my $812.50 net profit, there is not one thing you can say or do to get at me. Right??????
