Deducting Environmental Cleanup Costs, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

For nearly a decade, there’s been a great deal of uncertainty over how to handle environmental cleanup costs. Two developments this year have cast new light on the problem, one confirming the direction we have been taking on the issue and the other raising some question about the reliance on a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court case in requiring the capitalization of some environmental cleanup costs.

Counter-Cyclical Agricultural Program Payments: Is It Time To Look At Revenue?, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock Dec 2000

Counter-Cyclical Agricultural Program Payments: Is It Time To Look At Revenue?, Chad E. Hart, Bruce A. Babcock

CARD Briefing Papers

This paper examines the Supplemental Income Payments for Producers (SIPP) program, a proposal to adjust the current federal farm program to react to declines in farm revenue. The SIPP program, as currently outlined, would provide farmers assistance when current national revenue for a crop falls below a set percentage of historical national revenue for the crop. The authors explore the implications of changing the percentage of revenue and/or the level of revenue covered (national, state, county, etc.). Revenue guarantees based on the futures markets rather than past revenue outcomes are also discussed.


Income Averaging And Losses: An Irs Change Of Position, Neil Harl Nov 2000

Income Averaging And Losses: An Irs Change Of Position, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

From the time of enactment in 1997 of income averaging for those involved in a farming business, effective in 1998, the question has been raised about how to handle losses in the three carryback or “base” years. Although the Internal Revenue Service has resisted efforts to allow negative taxable income to figure in to the calculations, recent publications appear to allow the use of negative figures.

The Status And Needs Of Small Businesses Owned And Controlled By Disabled Veterans, Paul R. Camacho Nov 2000

The Status And Needs Of Small Businesses Owned And Controlled By Disabled Veterans, Paul R. Camacho

William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences Publications

This introduction provides a thumbnail sketch, or landscape, of the history and conditions of veterans’ benefits against which to profile the issue of veterans’ small business opportunities. After years of applied research on issues pertaining to the veteran community, it has become abundantly clear to this researcher that the good people who serve in our federal and state agencies, and as staff persons in various congressional and state legislative offices often lack the data and/or information they need to fully and meaningfully address the needs of veterans and their families. This situation is no doubt a result of demographic ...

Rights Of Farmers In Failed Grain Elevators, Neil Harl Oct 2000

Rights Of Farmers In Failed Grain Elevators, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

During the farm debt crisis of the 1980s, grain elevator failures became a common occurrence in many rural communities. In recent years, elevator failures have occurred as a result of abuses with respect to hedge-to-arrive contracts and improper or unauthorized activity in futures markets. Presently, the severe decline in the farm economy has placed additional stress on elevators. With the recent news of the failure of the largest agricultural cooperative in the state of Kansas the issue of grain elevator failures has received renewed attention along with its impact on grain depositors and on the agricultural community.

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

This article discusses the difficulties of predicting and preventing school violence. Though the FBI does have a list of "warning signs" by which to evaluate potential perpetrators of lethal school violence, they do not consider this list to be a profile. This is especially true given that no reliable predictors of lethal school violence have been found.
