New York Tax Incentives for Farm Employers: Overtime, Investment and Employee Retention

Event Details


June 21, 2022


11am - 12:30pm EDT




Farm Credit East

In the 2022 State of the State and State Budget, Governor Hochul announced three significant tax credits that are applicable to many farmers in New York: - The Farm Worker Overtime Tax Credit - reimburses farms for overtime expenses if the threshold is reduced below 60 hours per week

- The Investment Tax Credit - provides a tax credit when farm assets are purchased and placed into service
- The Employee Retention Credit - provides a tax credit based on the number of farm employees working over 500 hours (per year)

These tax credits are all new or expanded, and can bring significant benefits to farms across the state. Please attend this webinar to find out what's new, what these tax credits cover, and how to apply. Some of these programs are still in development, so we will cover what is known, and what is yet to be determined. Time will be provided for Q&A with tax experts.
This webinar is presented in collaboration with Farm Credit East, NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets, NYS Department of Taxation & Finance, and Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development.
This webinar is free and open to all. To register, visit: The webinar will be recorded for those who cannot attend live, and posted on Farm Credit East's webinars page for future reference.

Is Grazing Sheep Beneath Solar Arrays and Opportunity for Your Future?

September 25, 2023
Mt. Morris, NY

Grazing sheep beneath utility-scale solar arrays can build wealth of present and future sheep farmers as vegetation management service providers and access to additional pasture. The Cornell Cooperative Enterprise Program (CEP) conducted a survey earlier this year completed by over 600 farmers. Farmers identified barriers to grazing sheep under solar arrays and weighed in on need for a producer-led organization to negotiate contracts on their behalf, coordinate logistics of multiple flocks, provide transport of sheep to and from the site, care for sheep while on-site, and provide supplemental mowing. Additional questions focused on processing and marketing needs.
