The relief is good for two months through February, 2012. Negotiations are already underway between the House and Senate to find a way to extend payroll tax relief through 2012.

But the bill ultimately passed by Congress did not extend the Section 179 expense deduction or 100% bonus depreciation at the 2011 levels. Both provisions have returned to prior lower levels.

Section 179 Expense Deduction

The expense deduction has returned to $125,000 for 2012 and phases out dollar-for-dollar once purchases of depreciable property reach $500,000. The 179 expense deduction applies to horses, farm equipment and other depreciable property used in a business and permits a horse owner or breeder to write-off up to $125,000 in assets purchased and placed in service in one’s horse business in 2012.

The expense allowance for 2010-2011 was $500,000 and phased out after purchases exceeded $2 million.

Bonus Depreciation

In addition, bonus depreciation has returned to 50% for 2012. Bonus depreciation allows horse owners and other horse businesses to write off 50% of the cost of “new” capital assets, including horses, when purchased and placed in service in 2012. To be eligible for bonus depreciation the original use of the property must commence with the taxpayer. Any prior use makes the property ineligible.

Bonus depreciation was 100% for eligible assets purchased and placed in service from September 8, 2010 through 2011.

Both provisions can be used together.

Retroactive Change is Possible

“It is possible that the higher levels could be reinstated retroactively to January 1, 2012. In fact, the House-passed payroll-tax bill extended 100% bonus depreciation through 2012, even though the Senate bill did not,” said AHC president Jay Hickey. “The negotiations between now and the end of February on the one-year extension of the payroll tax reduction could include other changes to the tax code, such as the expense deduction or bonus depreciation. But this is speculation at this point.” [post_title] => American Horse Council Explains Changes in Tax Benefits for Horse Owners [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => american-horse-council-explains-changes-in-tax-benefits-for-horse-owners [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2015-10-11 05:27:00 [post_modified_gmt] => 2015-10-11 10:27:00 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://www.horsecouncil.org/?post_type=press-release&p=271 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => press-release [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [1] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 272 [post_author] => 2953 [post_date] => 2015-10-11 05:30:37 [post_date_gmt] => 2015-10-11 10:30:37 [post_content] => Despite the low approval ratings for Congress, Americans are still interested in what Congress is doing. Why? Because what Congress does - or does not do - impacts the horse industry. This is true regardless of your breed or discipline, whether you are an individual owner, run a track or show, own a horse business, work in the industry as a service provider or ride for recreation.

It is important that we build relationships with our elected leaders in Washington and that they understand and appreciate the $102 billion horse industry’s contribution to the economic, sporting and recreational sectors of the U.S. and their states. 2012 is a terrific opportunity to do this because it is an election year and so many members of Congress and new candidates are running for federal office and they want to meet you.

One of the best ways to build a relationship is to simply invite a member of Congress to your farm or ranch or to an equestrian event back in the district or state. Invite other horse people so there is a built-in crowd of voters. A personal experience with the horse community makes an impression.

All across the country there are farms and ranches getting ready for the breeding season, a great time to showcase the industry. There are horse shows, large and small, races, rodeos, organized and disorganized trail rides, horse sales, etc. Each of these events is an opportunity to build a relationship with a member of Congress or a candidate and to help them understand the horse industry a little bit better. Remember that going to a horse farm or event is a pleasant way to spend a few hours. Having voters there makes it even more pleasant for those running for Congress.

Building relationships with members of Congress is more important now than ever. There are many issues before Congress such as taxes, federal spending, immigration reform and racing legislation, trails legislation and disease programs that could all have profound implications for the horse industry. Only by having personal exchanges with their constituents, who are involved with the horse industry, will members of Congress fully appreciate how these issues impact the industry.

If you would like to invite a member of Congress to your facility or your organization has an upcoming event you think would be appropriate for your Senator or Representative to attend, please contact the AHC. The AHC will help you invite them and provide any guidance you might need. You can call or email the AHC at (202) 296-4031 or AHC@horsecouncil.org for help. Ask for our brochure, Getting Involved in the 2012 Elections, which will give you some pointers.

Please get involved. You will be helping yourself and your industry. And remember that while Congress’ approval rating as a whole is very low, polls still show that most people feel their Senator or Representative is doing a good job so you might even enjoy the visit. They will.

(Washington, DC)- On January 20th, the transfer of power in Washington, DC officially begins with the traditional Inaugural Parade. Over 3,000 organizations applied to march in the parade, with only 40 being selected. Of those 40, nine of them are equine organizations,

“We are pleased to see the equine community being well represented during the Inaugural Parade,” said American Horse Council President Julie Broadway. “Equines were an integral part of the foundation of the United States, and Presidents throughout history have appreciated and admired the grandeur of the horse.”

The most recognized equines in the parade will be the Caisson Platoon from Fort Myer, VA. In addition to their well-known, solemn duty of military funerals, the Caisson Platoon also participates in numerous historic processions performed by the Old Guard, as well as the notable honor of being included in Presidential Inaugural Parades.

The Michigan Multi-Jurisdiction Mounted Police Drill Team & Color Guard, from Ann Arbor, MI, will be participating in the Inaugural Parade for the third time. The Michigan Horse Council (MHC) will also be well represented, as MHC President Col. Don Packard, US Army Retired, will carry the MHC flag in the parade. This is also the first time a person not a member of mounted law enforcement has ridden with the group. “We are excited to be coming to Washington, DC,” said Col. Packard. “There are 23 riders in this group, and they are bringing along a support staff of another 20 people who are also honored to be a part of such a historic event.”

The 1st Infantry Commanding General’s Mounted Color Guard of Ft. Riley, KS will also be participating in this year’s Inaugural Parade. Established in 1992, the Commanding General's Mounted Color Guard (CMCG) provides a link to Fort Riley's historic past. Troopers and horses of this unit are outfitted in the uniforms, accessories and equipment of the Civil War period. From privates to officers, these men and women recreate American Horse Soldier at community events, parades, and official ceremonies. At the AHC’s recent Coalition of State Horse Council’s Fall meeting in October, the CMCG did a demonstration for meeting attendees at Kansas State University and then a short meet/greet with Q&A about their program.

The AHC looks forward to seeing all of the equestrian organizations with the distinct honor of participating in the parade. For more information on the Inaugural Parade, please visit the informational website here.

American Horse Council President Julie Broadway will provide keynote address

The Kentucky Equine Education Project will convene a gathering of horse industry leaders and policy makers from across the state to discuss ways to protect and promote the Commonwealth’s signature industry. The Equine Industry Conference will take place on October 17-18 at the Embassy Suites on Newtown Pike in Lexington, KY.

“KEEP is proud to bring leaders from across the state together to discuss the challenges we face as an industry and how best to build on recent success,” said Joe Clabes, KEEP Executive Director. This will be a great opportunity to hear diverse perspectives on all aspects of Kentucky’s equine economy.

The conference will begin Monday afternoon with partner organization meetings and other breakout sessions, followed by an evening welcome reception providing casual networking opportunities. During Tuesday’s sessions, equine industry leaders and experts will participate in panel discussions regarding the current state of the equine economy and how to improve the outlook for the future. Presentations will include a review of economic data, legislative and regulatory discussion by key policy experts and information about innovative programs to support the equine economy through improved business marketing, tourism opportunities and new industry-based initiatives.

The lunch program on Tuesday will feature an address by Julie Broadway, who was named President of the American Horse Council (AHC) earlier this year. Ms. Broadway will discuss AHC initiatives, including the effort to update the National Economic Impact Study. She will also provide insight into what the horse industry can expect from Washington in the coming months.

“The 1996 and 2005 Economic Impact Studies gave incredible insight to an industry that operates in every corner of the country, and contributes greatly to the American culture and economy. We are looking forward to seeing how the 2017 study will be able to further illustrate the importance of our diverse industry,” said Julie Broadway. “With a new Congress coming into Washington in November, it’s more important than ever that the AHC continue to play a critical role in the long term success of the industry, and ensure a favorable legislative environment for the industry to come.”

Tuesday's luncheon will also include an awards presentation honoring an individual and organization that have distinguished themselves through their leadership in Kentucky’s horse industry.

The Prevent All Soring Tactics Act of 2015 (S. 1121/H.R. 3268) (PAST Act) garnered a significant amount of bi-partisan support in 2015 and now has 240 co-sponsors in the House and 50 co-sponsors in the Senate.  The PAST Act is supported by the American Horse Council (AHC) and almost all major national horse show organizations and many state and local horse organizations. The bill was introduced by Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Mark Warner (D-VA) in the Senate and Representatives Ted Yoho (R-FL) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) in the House of Representatives. 

The PAST Act would strengthen the Horse Protection Act (HPA) and end the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses, and Racking Horses. Despite the existence of a federal ban on soring for over forty years, this cruel practice continues in the “performance” or “big lick” segments of the Walking Horse industry. “Ending soring is not only important in those segments of the Walking Horse industry,” said AHC president Jay Hickey, “it is also important for the well-being and economic health of the horse industry because, while soring happens only in a small segment of the Walking Horse industry, such abuse damages the image of the entire horse industry.”

Every major national horse show organizations support the PAST Act, including the American Horse Council, the American Quarter Horse Association, the U.S. Equestrian Federation, the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the American Paint Horse Association, the American Morgan Horse Association, the Pinto Horse Association of America, the Arabian Horse Association, the American Saddlebred Horse Association, the United Professional Horsemen’s Association, the Appaloosa Horse Club, as well as many state and local horse organizations.

“Very few bills in Congress ever achieve this level of bi-partisan support,” said Hickey.  “The magnitude of support for this bill is clear, but there is still a lot of work that will need to be done to make sure it is brought to a vote. The AHC will be continuing its efforts to see that this happens when Congress reconvenes in January.”

 “All members of the horse community should contact their Senators and Representative in the New Year and tell them ‘they should co-sponsor the PAST Act and it should be given a vote as soon as possible and they should vote for it, when that happens’,” said Hickey.

On October 14, the American Recreation Coalition hosted a Recreation Issues Forum on Capitol Hill.   The Recreation Forum brought together leaders from the recreation community and outdoor industry as well as Congressional staff to highlight a number of recreation issues and legislative priorities of the outdoor community.  American Horse Council vice president of government affairs Ben Pendergrass was one of the invited speakers. 

Pendergrass focused on the  National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act  (NFSTS Act) (H.R. 845/S.1110), introduced by Representatives  Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) and Tim Walz (D-MN) and Senators Mike Enzi (R-WY) and Michael Bennet (D-CO). The bill would direct the Forest Service to take several actions to help address the current trail maintenance backlog that is adversely impacting all trail users in many National Forests, including equestrians.

“The Recreation Issues Forum was a great opportunity to talk about the importance of the National Forest System Trails Stewardship Act to the horse industry and how the bill will improve National Forest trail maintenance and increase access for all American without adding to the federal deficit,” said Pendergrass.  “It was also an important chance for leaders in the outdoor community and congressional staff to discuss the best path forward to achieving recreational priorities this Congress.”  

In addition to the NFSTS Act, many issues important to all members of the outdoor recreational community were discussed, including the Recreational Trails Program that provides funding for recreational trails and trail-related facilities; the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) that provides funds to federal, state and local governments for the acquisition of land and water for recreation and the protection of natural resources; as well as the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) that provides the authority for the federal land management agencies to charge fees.

“Since the Forum both the RTP  and LWCF  have been re-authorized delivering big wins for all recreational users of public land, including equestrians,” continued Pendergrass. “Hopefully we can build on this momentum in 2016 and pass the NFSTS Act.”
