Farm to Food Bank Tax Credit

Farmers are encouraged to consider donating agricultural products under West Virginia’s Farm-to-Food Bank Tax Credit. Passed in 2017, producers who wish to donate fresh, healthy agricultural products to local food programs can earn a tax credit up to $5,000. The credit can be used against personal income tax or corporation net income tax, but not both.

The credit is equal to 30% of the value of the donated edible agricultural products to one or more nonprofit food programs in the state. To apply for the credit, a farmer must submit a donation form to the West Virginia Department of Agriculture for verification. That form must be included with the taxpayer’s tax return to receive the credit.
