    Succession planning? Here’s why you want to gift the farm

    There can be a significant amount of wealth tied-up in farm businesses—including partnerships and corporations—and there are opportunities in the succession process to distribute that wealth on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. Much of this wealth is eligible for capital gains exemptions, allowing it to pass on to the next generation, so that they can continue farming without a heavy debt burden. If you’re in the process of planning the succession of your farming business, it’s important to consider taking advantage of gifting, as it allows you to apply tax benefits to farming assets.
