Farm tax workshops to be offered in area locations


The University of Missouri Extension will offer a free farm tax workshop in November at locations throughout the state. This workshop explains major tax changes affecting farms and ranches that went into effect in December 2017.

The workshops are 6:15-8:45 p.m. on Nov. 12 and Nov. 19. Extension specialists will present the workshops remotely through interactive distance learning technology, says Mary Sobba, MU Extension agricultural business specialist.

Topics include tax brackets, deductions, charitable contributions, estate, and gift tax exemptions, depreciation, bonus depreciation, farm lease income, QBI deduction, Section 199A, and drought issues.
