Benefit payments increase the first of- the year and takes to. support the program went up, ".too. The Law Center' cooperates .'with Iowa State, College and'the U. S. Department of Agriculture in. conducting research on farm law and economics! > Self "employed farmer*! There change in self-employment -computation for 1958, But owner- bperators> tenant farmers, part. hers and* Others receiving self-em- * ploy ment, • income; -'• are scheduled 'to pay More social security tax bri .59 income. The tax increases ''•'from 3 and ,3/8 perecent on a maximum of $4,200 to 3 3/4- per•cent-on a maximum of $4,800 self-employment income per year. .The tax is figured on net earnings 1 and is paid when the- federal income tax return is filed. , Self-employed farmers have a special" option • when income for is $1,80'0 br fess/twcMtoirdft bf^ gross income may be reported as self employment income. If gross income is over $L800 but net earnings are lea's than '$1,200 a farmer may teport $1,200 a self- employment income, Acreage-feserve payments (soil bank) are considered self-employment income, eveft if thfe entire farm goes into the reserve. But if the farm is rented, me acreage- reserve payments are treated like rent to the landlord. Landlordsf Generally, landlords who have leased their land .or are in a crop-share arrangement are nbt considered self-employed. So,they do hot pay social security tax or receive benefits on rental income. Folks who have paid into social security long enough to become fully insured (generally 40 quarters) may find this to be an advantage. 1 But for those who need the extra income to qualify for maximum benefits, it is a disadvantage. For landlord's farm income to be considered self-employment income, the "material participation" requirement must be met. EC a lease provides for landlord participation in production and management and thq, participation is actually carried out, the landlord will be liable for self-employment tax and.eligible for social security benefits. It is important to get the agreement down in writing and then keep records of participation. Material participation is easier to justify with livestock-share the year is low. If gross income leases than with crop-share leases. * l • Folks wishing to even out their income as they near age 65 may want to consider re-organizing the farm business as a corporation.. Within reason, normal fluctuations of net income may be smoothed but. Employers and employeess Social security tax rates on Wages paid also increased on Jan. l f 1959. Employers and employees should now be paying 2% percent on a maximum wage of $4>800 as compared to 2% percent on a' maximum of $4,200 in 1958. Farm employers are required to haX'e an employer's identification number. Folks-who do hot ,now have a number may obtain one by filing Form SS-4A with the District Director of Internal Revenue. These forms are available from social security or Interrta revenue offices. The, employer must keep re cords On each employee to whom he pays $150 or more'per year .or on each employee working on a time basis .(hour, day or week) 20 ,days or more per year. The records to be kept oil each employee include his ' name, social security number, cash Wage payments, records of timfe worked & the amounts deducted as employee social security tax. Then the employer files Form 943 (Employers' Tax and Information Return for Agricultural Employees) before Jan. 30' for the previous year's wages paid. Whenever ah employer has $100 of tax accrued, he is supposed to deposit it in a federal depository. The local bank can give instructions how this should be done. No tax is due and no benefits result from children under 21 working for parents, a spouse working for the other spouse or a parent working for his or her child. This is 'the seventh of 8 articles on farm income tax prepared for the Algona Upper Des Moines by the Agricultural Law Center. The final article in the series will discuss the times and methods of filing. Julia Raney Wesley Bride til „' \ 9 ' j f FOR livability... to start strong oncl. stay strong.
