Taxes on Farm Equipment

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

I'm a long time employee of USDA and I think that farmers should pay a small portion of taxes on all of their equipment. Our state doesn't even tax their equipment. On my little $2000 camper I pay more tax than a farmer does on a $200,000 piece of equipment. I realize that with the price of equipment that the rate should be alot lower than regular taxes, but that would really be a money maker if they just had to pay a little on their high dollar equipment

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
