EPA Proposes Cow Tax

Washington, D.C. - December 10, 2008

Farmers across the country may soon be getting a big tax bill.

The Environmental Protection Agency is considering a cow tax in an effort to combat methane emissions from cows. Under the proposal, a farmer would have to pay $175 per dairy cow and $87 per beef cow a year. 

Many Congressmen on Capitol Hill are against the idea. They feel the cow tax will force many farmers out of business.
