Income Tax School

The WVU Extension Service Small Farm Center offers a wide variety of tax education opportunities for both tax professionals and farm families.

Here’s what we’re offering for the upcoming tax season.

Tax Cut and Jobs Act Seminar

This summer, the Small Farm Center is offering special one-day seminars focused on the Tax Cut and Jobs Act, the most sweeping change in the tax code in the last 30 years. This workshop provides an in-depth discussion of the most important provisions of this complex tax legislation.

Each seminar will be instructed by Mark Ribas. Learn more about Mark.

Attendees earn 8 CPEs or 7.8 MCLEs. Cost to register is $210.

Farm, Forestry and Natural Resource Tax Seminar

The Small Farm Center hosts yearly a one-day farm, forestry and natural resource tax seminar, which is often the only source of up-to-date tax code changes in agriculture, focusing on the Schedule F and Publication 225. Attendees earn 8 CPE credits. Cost to register is $180.

County-based Schedule F Trainings

The Small Farm Center also presents several farm income tax (Schedule F) workshops annually. The perspective of the workshops is toward enlightening participants as to how to manage tax liability which often involves a team approach involving professionals and the tax payer. Of course, the sessions include recent changes and rulings, but the classes focus on the many advantageous options filers have. This list includes spousal employment, accurate accounting of USDA conservation payments, and sub-section 179 deductions, to name a few.

For each seminar, we work diligently to make sure the food served during lunch and breaks is locally grown from farms nearby.

If there is a tax-related issue you would like to have discussed, please contact Tom McConnell at 304-293-2642 or email Tom.
