What documents are required for an APH audit review?
This review process is typically done during harvest season. This will take place if you have a loss exceeding the threshold of $200,000 for a specific crop in a specific county. The purpose of the review is to validate reported production, which means a variety of documents can be utilized, including settlement sheets, load records, bin measurements, loss papers, livestock feeding records or other approved records that would verify acres and production.
Your main responsibility is to provide three years of verifiable production evidence for the units of the crop being reviewed. Claims for the current crop year will not be paid until this process is complete. This could delay receiving a payment at a time that many farmers have cash flow constraints resulting from the drought. Please review our APH review guidelines for additional details.
