8 Hours

This session will help practitioners recognize unique tax opportunities and pitfalls for taxpayers in the agriculture industry. Our education sessions give tax professionals a forum to discuss current issues affecting their farm and ranch clients. In addition to covering income and deduction items unique to agribusiness producers, we will also cover recent tax developments affecting agribusiness.

  • An in-depth discussion of the deduction for business income under Section 199A, and how farms may restructure for the maximum advantage.
  • Learn how the gross receipts limitations exempt farmers from other complex computations.
  • Analysis of pass-through versus C corporation entity planning for operating enterprises.
  • Evaluation of bonus depreciation versus the Section 179 alternative.
  • Hear about tax reform and federal legislative provisions that remain unknown and will require guidance from the IRS.
