How Does the New Tax Law Affect You?

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.
