Roger McEowen, Kansas Farm Bureau Professor of Agricultural Law & Taxation at the Washburn University School of Law joined us on Monday’s Ag Issues program. The cases discussed included a court looking at the “Lake Erie Bill of Rights” and whether or not it could be enforced by the city of Toledo, Ohio. McEowen also looked at a case of a family farming operation in western Pennsylvania, which the court deemed that the operators of the farm were serial wetland violators. He also commented on a case out of the big island of Hawaii concerning a reversion to agricultural use classification is considered not a taking. McEowen also looked at a case where a failure to disclose a foreign bank account on return triggered a nearly $1 million penalty. He also looked at a case where it was determined that no deductions for farm not operated for profit.
