Nebraska’s NextGen Tax Credit Program

The NextGen Tax Credit Program is a program administered by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture that seeks to help beginning farmers and ranchers establish a longer-term relationship with existing farmers and ranchers.

By using a tax incentive, the NextGen program hopes to increase the odds of turning beginning farmers/rancher into established farmers/ranchers.

To qualify as a beginning farmer/rancher, you must be a resident of Nebraska for at least six months, have less than $175,000 in net worth, must have farmed/ranched for less than 10 of the last 15 years, and meet certain education/experience and labor requirements. Furthermore, the owner of the land must be an individual or business entity that is eligible to receive the tax credit.

Benefits for the beginning farmer include: a three-year lease instead of year-to-year, up to $500 tax credit reimbursement for a required financial management class, and the beginning farmer may apply for the Personal Property Tax Exemption.

Benefits for the owner include a tax credit of 10% of the value of the cash rent, or 15% of the value of the share crop rent.

For more information, please see our handout, or contact Karla Bahm at 800.446.4071 or email at karla.bahm@nebraska.gov

Survey for Farm/Ranch Seekers and Owners

This short 5 minute survey aims to learn how farm/ranch owners are thinking about future opportunities for their land, and how that compares to people who are looking for a farm/ranch of their own. The data collected will be publicly made available through NextGen and other programs. All responses are anonymous and confidential.

This survey is part of a United States Department of Agriculture study led by the Kansas Rural Center and Indiana University. For questions about the survey contact Julia Valliant at jdv@indiana.edu or 812-855-3155.
