I I I II II I I IIII I \ ClS tax management " Submitted by Everett Mason, Extension Agent West Virginia farmers sh6 lg! be concerned with Social~ Security from two standpoints, says Gerald V. Eagan, West Virginia Extension specialist in agricultural economics. As self-employed persons, farmers (or their children) may generate net earnings of $400 or more from livestock or crop sales. This would cause a tax bill at the rate of 11.3 percent on those net earnings for 1984, and the rate goes up each year through 1986, As employers of part-time, and occasionally, full-time help, farmers also may be liable for "employer" Social Security taxes and "withholding" of Social Security from their employees' wages. For 1984, a total Social Security tax of 13.7 percent of gross wages must be paid on a farm employee if the annual wage to an individual ex- ceeds $150 or wages are paid to an individual 20 or more days during the year. Because most West Virginia farmers are part-time farmers, Dr. Eagan says the most likely occurence is a combination of "selfemployment" Social Security from farm net earn- ings, plus FICA (Social Security) withholding by an employer, Self-employment Social Security tax rates were raised considerably by the 1983 Social Security Amendment. To reduce the immediate cost of the in- crease, annual credits apply to the earlier years, The net rates for self-employment Social Security taxes, after credit, are: 198,t-11.30 percent; 1985-11.80; 1986-12.30; 1987-12.30; 1988-13.02; 1989-13.02; and 1990-15.30. Self-employment taxes are These rules do not apply to your spouse. Special rules apply when a partnership or a corporation employs children of owners or spouses of owners. Consult the IRS publication for specific in- formation. Social Security tax rates for farm employees were revised by the 1983 Social Security Amend- ment. The rates set forth by law are outlined here: (Year- Withhold from Employee Wages-Match by Employer) 1984-6.70 percent-7.O0 percent: 1985-7.05-7.05: 1986-7.15-7.15; 1987-7.15-7.15; 1988-7.51-7.51; 1989-7.51-7.51. Many part-time farmers in West Virginia who work off the farm will be subject to a com- bination of self-employment tax on any "farm profit" and to the FICA withholding by their off- farm employer. Schedule E of Form 1040 provides a worksheet for calculating the total Social Security bill to be paid by those individuals. Most individuals will not earn enough total wages and self-employment earnings to reach the "ceiling" above which no Social Security is due. That ceiling is $37,800 for 1984 earn- ings. FUTA, or Federal Unemploy- ment Taxes, may be required of larger scale farm operators. The FUTA tax is due only if cash wages of $20.000 or more were paid in any calendar quarter of the year, or if 10 or more farm workers were employed at least Submitted by Everett Mason Extension Agent one day in each of 20 different calendar weeks of the current or preceding year. Few West Virginia farmers incur this tax. Farmers who hire "contract work" for any business pur- pose--such as harvesting a crop. building a fence, or, shear- Lug sheep---should report such payments as "other" expense, rather than as "labor hired" on Schedule 104OF. They must also report such contractual payments exc one individual porated should MISC at year For more income and taxes, farmers should consult 225.
