NY Farmers To Get New Tax Break
There are some benefits for New York farmers in a tax package just unveiled in Washington. Senator Charles Schumer says he secured the restoration and permanent extension of key provisions of Section 179 of the tax code, which provides tax deductions that help family farmers purchase needed equipment. There's something for apple growers, too. The tax extenders package includes the Cider Act introduced by Schumer to boost the state's growing hard cider industry.
