Farm Bureau members can take advantage of the 10% discount savings associated with an AgriPlanNOW!
 

TASC’s AgriPlanNOW medical reimbursement plans save clients an average of $5,500 annually by allowing family farmers and other qualified small business owners to deduct 100 percent of their family health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical, vision and dental expenses not covered by insurance as business expenses, rather than personal deductions.

TASC offers an industry-exclusive Audit Guarantee and a money back guarantee, as well as a TASC Card to make medical expense reimbursement as easy as the swipe of a debit card.

AgriPlan (for farmers) and BizPlan (for small business owners) services allow businesses to deduct 100 percent of their family health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical, vision, and dental expenses not covered by insurance. AgriPlan/BizPlan are Internal Revenue Code Section 105 Medical Reimbursement Plans available to business owners across the nation. Average participants save more than $5,500 annually in taxes.
