Farm Bureau Members Urged to Push Congress for Tax Relief

Washington--Farm Bureau members are urged to contact their members of Congress and ask them to support extension of tax cuts set to expire this year. Messages from Farm Bureau members are critical in making sure that the $5 million exemption and 35 percent top rate are included in the final agreement and becomes law.

“Time is running short for Congress to act, and House and Senate Democrats have not yet announced support for the agreement,” said Cody Lyon, AFBF director of grassroots advocacy. “State Farm Bureaus are encouraged to engage their members through e-mails, phone calls, letters from leadership and any other direct contact that can be made quickly.”
