For the third time, Jeff Burzawa has been voted #1 Gold Attorney in Westmoreland County!

"There is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible."

-Judge Learned Hand, 1947

Equine / Farm Law

In a recent tax court case, a couple bought, bred and trained horses in addition to working regular jobs. They had a detailed business plan and adjusted it after consulting with experts. They used recognized horse farm accounting software, opened a separate bank account and set up a website for their breeding operations. After several years of red ink, they prudently realized they couldn't make a go of it and shut down the business. This convinced the court that they had a profit motive and their breeding operation was more than a hobby and were allowed all expenses. (Blackwell, TC Memo. 2011-188).

You may operate as a sole proprietor, a partnership or a corporation but detailed rules must be followed. As a farm owner, Jeff has personal experience in farm taxes.
