This session will help practitioners recognize unique tax opportunities and pitfalls for taxpayers in the agriculture industry. Our education sessions give tax professionals a forum to discuss current issues affecting their farm and ranch clients. In addition to covering income and deduction items unique to agribusiness producers, we will also cover recent tax developments affecting agribusiness. This seminar is presented by CPAs and agribusiness professionals active in public accounting. Our primary instructor has many years of experience in farm taxation and regularly presents at national agribusiness conferences.
