Farm Taxation Update with Paul Neiffer

farmwebFarm Taxation Update with Paul Neiffer
June 7, 2019 / OSCPA Center, Beaverton

In addition to covering income and deduction items unique to agribusiness producers, we will also cover what we have learned from the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This seminar is presented by Paul Neiffer, a CPA and agribusiness professional. CLA instructors have many years of experience in farm taxation and regularly present at national agribusiness conferences.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Apply key tax planning concepts to farm and ranch taxation (cash accounting methods unique to agriculture, issues of constructive receipt, deferred payments, and prepaid expenses)
  • Recognize key tax planning opportunities embedded in tax reform for farm and ranch clients
  • Describe the computational results of Section 199A, the deduction for qualified business income
  • Differentiate key points in entity structure planning for clients when evaluating the C corporation alternative to pass-through taxation
  • Recall tax updates from court cases, revenue rulings, and other authorities applicable to agriculture
