Prepaid Farm Expenses, Jeffrey E. Tranel Sep 2012

Prepaid Farm Expenses, Jeffrey E. Tranel

Rural Tax Education

Farmers and ranchers often pay for feed, supplies, fertilizer, and other inputs in one year and use those items in the following year. They may do so to pay lower prices, guarantee availability, for planning purposes, and/or other reasons.

The Internal Revenue Code allows qualified farmers and ranchers (farm-related taxpayers) to deduct the costs of such purchases in the year that the purchases are made rather than the year in which such items are used. Generally, the deduction for pre-paid farm supplies is limited to 50% of other deductible farm expenses (all schedule F deductions except supplies) for the ...

Examining The Finances Of Higher Education Institutions To Understand Their Priorities, Clinton M. Stephens Jan 2012

Examining The Finances Of Higher Education Institutions To Understand Their Priorities, Clinton M. Stephens

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

These three articles critically examined the priorities of American higher education institutions through studying their patterns of spending. Precipitated from an interest in the consequences that the Great Recession in 2008 and 2009 had on public higher education institutions in the United States, this research studied how the institutions chose to allocate their financial resources. By using finances as a measure of priorities across the higher education system, these collective choices revealed systemic priorities. Each of these three articles analyzed these priorities from a unique perspective.

The paper suggests that alternative models can be developed which would make business schools more financially sustainable. While there has been a lot of societal ...
