County Fair Livestock Sale Checks – Pickup Oct 2 & 3

Checks will no longer be mailed. On October 2, 2022 between 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm and October 3, 2022 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm at the Senior Fair Board Office, 922 Front St, Marietta. This change is being made due to the necessity to collect an IRS W-9 form.

Further explanation why a W-9 is needed by all county fair livestock sale participants.

To be compliant with IRS requirements, the Fair Board is required to file 1099 MISC for anyone who sells their project for $600 or more.  To file these forms, the County Fairboard is required to have a completely filled-out W-9 for each person going through the livestock sale. This form also helps as an aid to the youth in preparing their tax return.  The proper reporting of this income on a tax return does not mean that they will have to pay any income tax, just that a return may be required.

The following is a paragraph from IRS Publication 225 found on page 75 of the 2020 edition explaining the reporting of 4-H projects:

4-H Club or FFA project. If an individual participates in a 4-H Club or National FFA Organization (FFA) project, any net income received from sales or prizes related to the project may be subject to income tax. Report the net income as “Other income” on Schedule 1 (Form 1040), line 8. If necessary, attach a statement showing the gross income and expenses. The net income may not be subject to SE tax if the project is primarily for educational purposes and not for profit, and is completed by the individual under the rules and economic restrictions of the sponsoring 4-H or FFA organization. Such a project is generally not considered a trade or business. For information on the filing requirements and other tax information for dependents, see Pub. 929.

As previously announced from the Washington County Fair Board about the distribution of 2022 Sale Checks:

Checks will no longer be mailed. On October 2, 2022 between 2:00 and 8:00 pm and October 3, 2022 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm at the Senior Fair Board Office, 922 Front St, Marietta. This change is being made due to the necessity to collect an IRS W-9 form.

A W-9 must be completed and turned in when the sale check is picked up.  Complete details are included below.

Champion Purchases Service Dog with Sale

Colten Work of Stockport, Ohio was awarded the Grand Champion Steer at the Barlow Independent Fair on Saturday September 24, 2022.  Colten was excited for his accomplishment but had another goal in mind with his Grand Champion Steer, Buckeye.  Colten had met a young girl with autism who was fundraising for a service dog from 4 Paws for Ability. Harper Jo Shivener had been raising funds for her own service dog and the family needed to raise $20,000. Colton is a member of the Palmer Lads & Lassies 4-H Club.

Service dogs along with their training can cost up to $60,000. 4 Paws for Ability works with families and tasks them with raising $20,000.  Shivener was diagnosed at the early age of 2 and struggles with speech and communication as well as running from family and caregivers.  The service dog will allow Harper to take part in family outings as it is trained for her safety.  Harper’s service dog will be trained for tethering and tracking if she would get away, as well as assisting her with day-to-day tasks and redirect and keep her calm when needed.

Colten along with his family, parents Shawn and Leah Work and sister Callie helped to solicit buyers, talk to fair goers about Harper Jo, and wore t-shirts in support of her fundraising efforts.  Colten was able to help Harper reach her goal and put her over the top when his Grand Champion Steer sold for $10,500 at Saturday night’s livestock sale and the Barlow Independent Fair.  All of Colten’s earnings with be donated to Harper Jo and she will be able to bring home her forever friend in the near future.
