Oklahoma poultry litter tax credit is reactivated
The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Environmental Management Services announced Aug. 27 that the $10 per ton Oklahoma poultry litter tax credit has been reactivated as of July 1, 2012. This credit is for Oklahoma poultry litter purchased from an Oklahoma registered poultry feeding operation located within an environmentally sensitive and nutrient limited watershed. The litter must also be applied by an Oklahoma licensed poultry waste applicator in a watershed that is not environmentally sensitive and is a non-nutrient limited watershed.
The $10 per ton poultry litter tax credit may be claimed for the 2012 tax year and subsequent tax years for Oklahoma poultry litter purchased and transported on or after July 1, 2012. Due to a moratorium, no tax credits may be claimed for purchases occurring during the period of July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2012.
