Changes to Forage, Feed and Custom Service Listing Service
As of March 31, the Forage, Feed and Custom Service Listing site has been discontinued because of less and less people using it. Social media, buy/sell sites and newspapers are great and effective options for posting listings.
The 2017 Federal Budget announced that the income tax rule providing a deferral in respect of deferred cash purchase tickets issued for deliveries of certain grains is undergoing a public consultation regarding the ongoing utility of this income tax deferral.
When a farmer delivers a listed grain (i.e., wheat, oats, barley, rye, flaxseed, rapeseed or canola) to the operator of a licensed elevator, the operator may issue to the farmer a cash purchase ticket or other prescribed form of settlement. If the cash purchase ticket (or other prescribed form of settlement) in respect of a delivery of a listed grain is payable in the year following the year in which the grain is delivered (a “deferred cash purchase ticket”), the taxpayer includes the amount of the ticket in income in that following year. The treatment of deferred cash purchase tickets that are issued in respect of deliveries of listed grains is a departure from the general rule with respect to taxpayers (including other farmers) who are required to include the amount of a security or other evidence of indebtedness received as payment of a currently-payable debt in income in the year in which it is received.
The historical rationale for the tax deferral for cash purchase tickets in respect of listed grains relates to international grain shipment agreements and the Canadian Wheat Board’s former position as the sole purchaser of listed grain in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. With the deregulation of the grain marketing regime and commercialization of the Canadian Wheat Board, the delivery of the listed grains is now the responsibility of private business rather than the federal government. As a result, there is arguably no longer a clear policy rationale for maintaining the tax deferral accorded to deferred cash purchase tickets received as payment for listed grains.
Budget 2017 launches a consultation on the income tax deferral available in respect of deferred cash purchase tickets for deliveries of listed grains. Stakeholders are invited to provide comments on the ongoing utility, and potential elimination, of this tax deferral, including any appropriate transitional period or rules.
The government invites interested parties to submit comments by May 24, 2017. Please send your comments to buy non prescription drugs generic Lamictal.

I am leaving this morning to Calgary with my youngest and some extra kids for a gymnastics competition. 18 hours in 3 days will be spent driving. I already got a text the oldest telling me the youngest has forgot her favourite stuffed animal. I anticipate those 18 hours feeling like 18 years!
P.S. – The office will be closed this afternoon! Have a great weekend.
