Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Please give me a few moments to prepare a response.
I apologize for the delay. You could amend your prior returns 2013, 2014, and 2015 to split the income and expenses from the farm between you and your husband. If the farm generated more than $118,000 of income this may result in additional taxes. If the farm operations made less than this than there would not be any additional taxes. By splitting the income and expenses you would be able to show some earned income. There is a 3 year statute of limitation to amend a return. This is why I limited to 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Yes, unfortunately you would only be able to amend the prior 3 years.
