Co-op Camp Registration is Open!

Back by popular demand, KCC Co-op Camp registration is now open for 2020! Co-op Camp is designed to educate young people on the cooperative principles. This summer program will provide a fun and engaging cooperative experience for students entering their junior and senior year of high school. Students will be self-selected by KCC member cooperatives.

The 3 day, overnight camp, will be held on July 8-10 at the historic Rock Springs 4-H Center, south of Junction City, KS. Early bird registration fee of $850 will include lodging, meals and all activities at the camp.

Here's what you need to know:

  • Registration is limited to the first 20 students and will be filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will accept the first 20 commitments. Any commitments received after the list is full will be placed on a waiting list and offered first right of refusal on any cancellations.
  • Each KCC-member cooperative is responsible for the selection of their participant(s).
  • Please respond to this email with your interest. This will hold your place until you can select your student(s).
  • Should you need help with the selection of your attendee, please contact the KCC.
  • We have included a flyer below to use for help in marketing this camp in your local area. You can also download the form here. Please feel free to use this to help attract your students.

DPAD and Grain Tax Benefit

Domestic Production Activities Deduction (DPAD) is a pass through tax benefit that we are able to offer to our members who sell grain to us that is physically delivered to our locations. Please do not confuse this as credit or as payment, it is a tax deduction, but something that we want to be certain to remind our members about. Also, this is not patronage or in lieu of patronage, DPAD is separate from patronage.

Due to PCA’s fiscal year (June 1 to May 31) not matching a calendar year, the deduction amount is not computed until the following year after delivery.

Example -

Grain that was delivered and ultimately sold to PCA in  calendar year 1 is computed in calendar year 2 and a 1099 is given to the producer showing the credit off of your year 2 taxes.

 **It is currently only credited to bushels that are delivered to our facilities, not direct ship bushels.**

 

For grain delivered in 2017 the deduction was 8.0¢/bu off the 2018 taxes

For grain delivered in 2018 the deduction will be 10.2¢/bu off the 2019 taxes.

 

Please consider this when determining where you market your grain!
