Free Farm Tax Workshops Offered By MU Extension

University of Missouri Extension will host free farm tax workshops in December to update farmers and ranchers on farm and individual tax filings.

MU Extension agriculture business specialist Mary Sobba said farmers can attend via Zoom or in person at locations throughout the state. Attendees can choose either the Dec. 1 or Dec. 6 session.

Topics include farm income averaging, bonus vs. Section 179 depreciation, income leveling techniques, charitable contributions, weather-related sales of livestock, health savings accounts, like-kind exchanges and 1099s. Sobba also will share IRS resources and updates that farmers and ranchers will find helpful.

Register for the free workshop at least two days before the session. One of the December 1st sites will be in Unionville at the Putnam County Library. Two of the December 6th sessions will be at the MU Extension Center for Mercer County in Princeton and the MU Extension Center in Buchanan County in St Joseph. Those sites can be called for registration.
