As 2022 begins, to make it easier for farmers, they can register their farm business online, even if they receive a mailed invoice. Last year, thousands of farmers took advantage of completing their registration online.
When farmers register their farm businesses online, they can:
Easily select an accredited farm organization and pay their registration – Farmers can pay online with a credit card. It's quick, easy and secure, and they can avoid a trip to the bank or the post office.
Immediately receive proof of registration – Farmers will receive an email as proof of registration, which can be used to apply for farm licence plates.
Quickly update their FBR information – Farmers will have their account information at their fingertips so they can confirm or update their farm information, all online.
For more information, including eligibility and important dates, visit agricorp.com/fbr.
All farm businesses in Ontario that gross $7,000 or more annually are required by law to register their farm business with Agricorp. The registration deadline is March 1, 2022.
If a farm’s gross farm income has dropped below $7,000, the land may still qualify for the Farm Property Class Tax Rate Program. To discuss eligibility, please contact Agricorp.
