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.


Federal Income Tax Seminars

The Income Tax Schools were designed especially for accountants, tax practitioners, enrolled agents, small business owners, and bankers who manage, prepare and file income tax returns. Our instructors bring years of tax experience from the IRS point of view. 

The coronavirus pandemic has continued to affected our lives and communities in many ways. For the safety of our participants, which is our highest priority, our annual tax seminar will be held virtually via Zoom. Attendees earn 16 Continuing Professional Education credits. Cost to register is $295. The registration fee includes the Income Tax class workbook, which will be mailed in advance. Registration is required in advance to receive the workbook.  Registration closes Friday, October 15, 2021.

The morning sessions will begin at 8 a.m. and we will break for the the day at 12 p.m. So grab your coffee or tea and join us! See our schedule and speaker information for more details.

The following topics to be addressed during the seminar:

  • Sale of Farm Assets
  • Social Security and Medicare
  • COVID-19 Legislation

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.
