Disaster and Crop

Written by C. Robert Holcomb and Gary Hachfeld, Extension Educators. This one page fact sheet includes information on Disaster and Crop Insurance Payments and their effect on your income tax return. Any crop insurance proceeds you receive need to be included as infom on your tax return. You generally include the income in the year the payment is received. Crop insurance also includes crop disaster payments received from the federal government as a result of destruction or damage to crops, or the inability to plant crops, because of drought, flood, or other natural disaster.
