Three Entity Rule

Business / Agriculture / Three Entity Rule: Federal law currently sets an annual cap on the amount of direct payments that a person may receive from major farm programs. A provision in this law permits a person to receive payments up to the full cap on the first farm in which the person has a substantial beneficial interest, and up to half the full cap on each of two additional farms: hence the so-called 'three-entity rule.'
