Foreign Buyers Notification
USDA Wednesday March 1, 2017

The Agricultural Foreign Investment Disclosure Act (AFIDA) requires all foreign owners of U.S. agricultural land to report their holdings to the Secretary of Agriculture. The Farm Service Agency (FSA) administers this program for USDA.

All individuals who are not U.S. citizens, and have purchased or sold agricultural land in the county are required to report the transaction to FSA with 90 days of the closing. Failure to submit the AFIDA form (FSA-153) could result in civil penalties of up to 25 percent of the fair market value of the property. County government offices, Realtors, attorneys and others involved in real estate transactions are reminded to notify foreign investors of these reporting requirements.

The Cumberland/Bledsoe County FSA Office is located at 314 Old Jamestown Hwy, in Crossville, beside the Post Office. The telephone numbers are 931-484-6520 or toll-free at 855-216-2802.

 


Senate Passes Campaign Investment Limits
AP Wednesday March 1, 2017

The state Senate has passed a bill seeking to prevent campaign funds from being invested in private companies.
The legislation follows the release of a Tennessee Registry of Campaign Fiance audit that found that former Rep. Jeremy Durham loaned $120,000 to a company run by prominent GOP donor Andrew Miller Jr.
The bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville passed on a 32-1 vote on Monday evening.
The measure co-sponsored by Republican Rep. Gerald McCormick of Chattanooga would limit candidate and political campaign committees' investments to banks or credit unions that are members of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
The bill would require any income from campaign investments to be reported on financial disclosure reports.
The companion bill is awaiting a vote in a House subcommittee.
