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.

Business Planning for Beginning Farmers

April 10, 2023
Jamestown, NY

Business plans for farms are often viewed as yet another chore to do and usually result in dusty binders taking up space on the office shelf. This discussion based workshop will walk you through the mental exercise of planning your future agricultural adventures. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the use of a business plan, the essential components, and a "to-do" list of things to think about to inform future planning efforts. Additional opportunities for one-on-one follow up will also be offered. FSA Borrower credits may be made available for your attendance. This workshop will be taught by Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Team Leader and Farm Business Management Specialist from the Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program with Cornell Cooperative Extension. She is a graduate of Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science and Ag Business Management, and owns and operates a diversified livestock farm.
