The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) reminds producers there are a number of options when filing AgriStability forms by the September 30, 2014, deadline for the 2013 program year.
The preferred method of providing AgriStability information to SCIC is through AgConnect. This online tool for reviewing program information and for submitting program forms has been well received by producers, accountants and form preparers. AgConnect is appreciated for its ease of use and the ability to quickly send AgriStability information to SCIC allowing processing to begin sooner. SCIC also continues to accept AgriStability Program forms through the traditional methods of mail, fax or at any of the 21 Crop Insurance offices across the province.
Individual producers (sole proprietors) are reminded their income and expense (tax) information, provided on the T1163 form must be submitted to the Canada Revenue Agency who will share this information with SCIC. To aid in processing your AgriStability forms, you can submit the same information to SCIC using AgConnect. An individual’s supplemental information (inventories, receivables, payables, deferrals and purchased inputs) is to be submitted directly to SCIC. Corporations and co-operatives are to continue to submit all AgriStability Program forms to SCIC.
If producers miss the September 30, 2014, deadline to file their program forms, they can still submit the information to SCIC up until December 31, 2014; however, a penalty of $500 per month will be applied to any benefit the producer receives.
