Frequently Asked Questions
How do I obtain a commercial farmer certification from LDR?
For certification as a commercial farmer, applicants must complete and submit Form R-1085, Application for Certification as a Commercial Farmer, with certain federal income tax documentation such as Schedule F. If approved, the applicant will receive Form R-1091, Commercial Farmer Certification. The R-1085 is available for download on the LDR website.
Applicants may submit their application and required federal income tax information in one of three methods: fax to (225) 237-6755; mail to the address listed on the top of the application; or online via LDR’s LaTAP system by accessing latap.revenue.louisiana.gov. Applicants are encouraged to submit the application and required federal income tax information through the LDR’s LaTAP system for fastest processing times. Applicants should only submit the application and required federal income tax information through one of the three methods. If an application is submitted by mail and fax, approval of the application may be delayed.
Failure to submit all the required information will result in denial of the certification.
