Wisconsin’s farmland preservation tax credit program would get some updates under a proposal from two state lawmakers. State Senator Patrick Testin from Stevens Point tells Brownfield the changes are designed to incentivize more farmers to participate in the program. “We should lessen the timeline from 15 years to 10 years to utilize this program and increase the dollar amount per acre and so just based on that feedback alone, we think we’ve got a good opportunity here to make changes to these programs.”
Testin tells Brownfield he’s also concerned about agricultural tax credits that might go towards acres converted to other uses like wind or solar energy production.
