DPAD and Grain Tax Benefit

Domestic Production Activities Deduction (DPAD) is a pass through tax benefit that we are able to offer to our members who sell grain to us that is physically delivered to our locations. Please do not confuse this as credit or as payment, it is a tax deduction, but something that we want to be certain to remind our members about. Also, this is not patronage or in lieu of patronage, DPAD is separate from patronage.

Due to PCA’s fiscal year (June 1 to May 31) not matching a calendar year, the deduction amount is not computed until the following year after delivery.

Example -

Grain that was delivered and ultimately sold to PCA in  calendar year 1 is computed in calendar year 2 and a 1099 is given to the producer showing the credit off of your year 2 taxes.

 **It is currently only credited to bushels that are delivered to our facilities, not direct ship bushels.**


For grain delivered in 2017 the deduction was 8.0¢/bu off the 2018 taxes

For grain delivered in 2018 the deduction will be 10.2¢/bu off the 2019 taxes.


Please consider this when determining where you market your grain!
