I assume the Deputy is asking about the tax return procedures for small farmers.

I would note there is no special tax return scheme for small farmers. However, to assist 'small traders', i.e. low turnover businesses where the owner does not engage a tax agent, Revenue has developed templates that are a guide to preparing a Profit and Loss account which will assist in completing their tax return. One such template is for farmers and is available from the Revenue Commissioners website at http://www.revenue.ie/en/business/farmers-extract-of-accounts-template.pdf.
