Help wanted Tax write-off chickens - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Def wanna get a pros advice but my understanding having a hatchery is you can only tax write off if your chickens are a business.

I just got off the phone with a CPA.  I am writing the chickens off but I also have a website structured around them.  I'm not worried about selling eggs.  I'm taking the hobby business to a whole new level.  Let me tell you the taxes are hard.  I have over 9k in write-offs and the biggest problem I have is the coop.  It can be removed if necessary so I'm not sure if I should have it depreciate.  If you can remove the structure technically it's not a solid structure.  This is so confusing.

10 chickens doesn't make a business, you need to prove profit 3 out of five years I believe to be considered a business. It has drastically changed in the last 20 years as far as what's allowed. Personally I wouldn't even attempt to write them off.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.
