1221. Does farm rental income count as net earnings?

Farm rental income counts as farm rental income counts if landlord materially participates net earnings from self-employment if, as part of the rental arrangement, you materially participate in the production or management of the production of the crop or livestock. If you do not materially participate, farm rental income does not count for Social Security purposes.

Note: "Landlord" means anyone who has rented to another individual, whether the land is owned or rented by the individual from a third party.
