The price is food is going up, one of the reasons is gas prices. Farmers can apply for something that makes them "farm assessed" which means they pay less taxes. Lowered property taxes, and no tax on items for their livestock/ fields. (this gets messy with horse farmers because of the tac sometimes). Well why should they pay the state and federal tax on gas? The government should offer farmers the same tax break on gas as they offer on feed, after all no farmers no food. The farmers should be able to fill up at a gas station, save the receipt and mail them all in to the government at the end of the year and get their federal and state taxes back. Some farmers have their own fuel tanks with ag grade fuel but not many do.
