Tax reminder for farmers from FSA

The Wisconsin Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that producers receiving less than $600 will no longer receive IRS Form 1099-G (Report of Payments to Producers) or IRS Form 1099-MISC.

In past years, IRS Forms 1099-G would be issued to show all program payments received from the Farm Service Agency, regardless of the amount.

Starting with calendar year 2012, producers whose total reportable payments from FSA are less than $600 will not receive IRS Form 1099- G. In addition, producers who receive payments from more than one county will only receive one Form 1099-G if the total of all payments from all counties is $600 or more.

If the payments were subject to voluntary withholdings or subject to backup (involuntary) withholdings a Form 1099-G will be issued regardless of the total amount of the payments.

The same changes will apply to producers and vendors who normally receive IRS Form 1099-MISC from FSA.

For more information regarding IRS reporting changes, please contact the Sheboygan County FSA office or visit

Kohler NMTPP work begins in July

Construction of non-motorized transportation pilot program projects in the village of Kohler will begin in July.

The work will include five-foot paved shoulders on each side of County Y between Greenfield Drive and State 23; in-ground crosswalk lighting on Greenfield Drive and Orchard Court along with restricted vehicle access to create a safer crossing to and from Ebben Field, where a multi-use pathway will be installed to connect with Forest Road; and paved shoulders added to both sides of Twin Oaks Road between the Kohler Co. and County Y to provide bicyclists a connection to the Kohler Co. and to the Old Plank Road Trail from County Y.

For more information on this project, visit the Sheboygan County website at and click on the links for “Departments” and “Planning.”
