(QSSB LETTERHEAD)

(Date)     Dear____________,   We are in receipt of your request for a refund pursuant to the National Soybean Promotion, Research and Information Program. Pursuant to the Soybean Promotion Research and Information Act (7 U.S.C. § 6301, et. seq.)(“Act”), and the Soybean Promotion Research and Consumer Information Order (7 C.F.R. § 1220.101, et. seq.)(“Order”), each soybean producer is required to pay one-half of one percent of the net market price of soybeans sold to fund promotion, research and consumer information activities designed to increase demand for soybeans.   There is a provision in our State Soybean Statute that restricts refunds and, therefore, we are unable to process your refund request. If you would like a copy of either the Soybean Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act and Order or our State Soybean Statute, please let us know and we will send you a copy.   Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your time.     Sincerely,
