Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister Lawrence MacAulay,
We the undersigned call on the Liberal government to abandon any attempt to eliminate farmers’ ability to defer cash purchase tickets to the following tax year.
This would be financially disastrous for farm families.
The current cash purchase ticket system helps farmers to stabilize income from year to year to ensure the long term sustainability of their operation. If farmers can no longer defer cash tickets for their crops, it will limit their ability to sell their crops on their own time frame and to cash manage their income and operating expenses.
