Extension Farm and Agribusiness Management Team Offers Farm Tax Seminar

AUBURN, Ala. — Extension’s newly formed Farm and Agribusiness Management Team will present a one-day workshop Friday, Oct. 14, for accountants who work with farmers and other agribusinesses.

The Farm Tax CPE Seminar will be in Prattville at the Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center at Capitol Hill. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. The conference center is located at 2500 Legends Parkway, Prattville, Alabama.

“The new tax seminar is developed to help Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and Enrolled Agents (EA) with farm-specific tax issues,” said Robert Page, Alabama Extension agribusiness and farm management agent. “Each of our speakers has significant experience with agricultural tax issues. We are confident that participants will find the program valuable.”

Robert Holcomb, EA, will be the featured speaker. A University of Minnesota Extension educator since 2004, Holcomb develops and delivers programs dealing with agricultural risk management. His program emphasis is farm analysis, business planning, labor management and taxation.

The second featured speaker is Dr. Robert Tufts, an Extension attorney from Auburn University. Sheneal Gibbs, a revenue examiner from the Alabama Department of Revenue and Nora Huffman from the Internal Revenue Service, also will  present a portion of the seminar.
