How Your Assessment is Determined: How Much Would You Owe?


The Organic Checkoff requires all entities whom handle certified organic products with total gross sales/revenue in organic products in excess of $250,000 in a calendar year to remit one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of its Net Organic Sales, which is the total gross in certified organic product minus (a) the cost of certified organic ingredients, feed, and inputs used in the production of certified products and (b) the cost of any non-organic agricultural ingredients used in the production of certified products.

Entities who handle organic products and have Gross Organic Revenue of $250,000 or less may elect to participate in the Checkoff as a voluntary assessed entity by remitting 0.1% of its Net Organic Sales.
