The President and leading Tax Reform legislators have announced the first major tax reform package in decades.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall said “Farm Bureau is encouraged to see that this framework includes important principles such as lower tax rates for individuals who own businesses, elimination of the death tax and some business interest deductibility. Farm Bureau looks forward to working with tax writers to refine the proposal to ensure that tax reform lowers effective tax rates for farm and ranch businesses."
