Ohio State University to Offer Agriculture and Natural Resources Tax Webinar and Workshop Dec. 19


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences will host a day-long tax webinar and workshop Dec. 19 for those who want to learn more about federal tax law changes and updates they may encounter when filing 2013 tax returns for farmers.

The six-hour program will focus on special issues specific to farm tax returns related to agriculture and natural resources and is open to tax preparers as well as individuals who file their own farm taxes, said Larry Gearhardt, director of the Ohio State University Income Tax School Program of Ohio State University Extension.

OSU Extension is the statewide outreach arm of the college.

The cost for the one-day school is $125 and organizers have applied for continuing education credit for the course, Gearhardt said. More information on the workshop, including how to register, can be found at http://go.osu.edu/taxschools. Participants can contact Gearhardt at 614-292-2433 or gearhardt.5@osu.edu for more information.

Registration includes the Agricultural Tax Issues Book. The deadline to register is Dec. 5 in order to ensure participants can get the manual in time for the workshop, Gearhardt said.

The live webinar, which will also feature a real-time Q&A, can be viewed at several host locations statewide and will include lunch. New this year is the option to view the webinar from home for those who aren’t able to attend a host location, he said.

For those who choose not to attend the host location, a web address of the webinar will be sent to those who have registered a week in advance of the Dec. 19 presentation. Registrations made after Dec. 5 may not receive the tax manual in time for the workshop for those who plan to view it in an off-site location.
