How Does the New Tax Law Affect You?


Thursday, May 17, 2018, 9:00am – 12:00pm


Colquitt County Extension Office



Georgia farmers and landowners can learn more about how the new tax law affects them individually and their farming operation at tax bill workshops from University of Georgia Extension. After the training, farmers will be better equipped to navigate the new tax provisions.


The workshop will highlight estate tax changes, individual tax changes and business tax changes in the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The workshop will also include a review of schedule F and how to report income as well as some tax planning techniques.


Dr. Robert Tufts, an Alabama Extension farm management specialist emeritus and attorney, will conduct the workshops at 4 locations May 15-18 9 am – 12 p.m.
