If you are looking for additional training on the new tax law (Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA)) and, in addition, how the TCJA applies to your farming or ranching operation, there are several opportunities for you that I am participating in that are open to the public. In addition, I continue to do in-house CPA/law firm training on the new law. If your firm has an interest in some in-house training, please contact me.
Today’s post contains a listing of those seminars coming up over the next couple of months.
For those of you in the western South Dakota area, eastern Wyoming, northwest Nebraska and Montana, I have the following events coming up. Tomorrow afternoon (Aug. 24), I will be making an hour-long presentation on how the new tax law applies to agricultural producers in Rapid City, SD. That event is open to the public. If you are in the area, stop in for a brief discussion of the new law. You can learn more about the event here: https://www.r-calfusa.com/event/annual-convention/.
On September 17-19, I will be conducting tax seminars for the North Dakota Society of CPAs in Grand Forks and Bismarck. The September 17 and 18 events will be in Grand Forks, and the second day there will be a day devoted to farm and ranch estate and business planning. For more information on the North Dakota events, you can find it here: https://www.ndcpas.org/courses.
Later in September I will be presenting a two-day seminar in Great Falls, Montana for the Montana Society of CPAs with my co-speaker, Paul Neiffer. The first day on September 26 will be devoted to farm income tax issues and day 2 on September 27 will focus on Farm Estate and Business Planning.

Illinois, Iowa and Indiana
If you are in eastern Iowa or western Illinois, on September 21, I will be presenting a farm tax seminar in Rock Island, Illinois, with Bob Rhea of the Illinois Farm Business Management Association. Details about that seminar can be found here: https://taxschool.illinois.edu/merch/2018farm.html. We will repeat that seminar on September 24 in Champaign, Illinois. So, if you are in central, southern or eastern Illinois or western Indiana, this seminar is in your area. Again, details on the Champaign event can be found here: https://taxschool.illinois.edu/merch/2018farm.html.
On October 12, I will be making a presentation on estate planning issues that are unique to farmers and ranchers at the 44th Annual Notre Dame Tax and Estate Planning Institute in South Bend, Indiana. Information about the Institute can be found here: https://law.nd.edu/for-alumni/alumni-resources/tax-and-estate-planning-institute/.
Fall Tax Schools – South Dakota/Northwest Iowa Event
In the near future, I will do a post on the fall tax schools that I conduct in various states. One new one this year will be in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on November 8 and 9. That event is sponsored by the American Society of Tax Professionals and will be held at the Ramada Inn & Suites. For information on that event call 1-877-674-1996. The seminar will be a two-day school taught by myself and Paul Neiffer. We will be teaching from the tax workbook produced by the University of Illinois that many of you may be familiar with. For those of you in northwest Iowa, northeast Nebraska, eastern SD and southwestern MN, these two days are for you.
The events mentioned above are the major events coming up over the next couple of months. I haven’t listed the in-house private seminars that I have scheduled in September and October. I have room for a couple more of those if your firm is interested. Also, most of my speaking events are listed on my website, www.washburnlaw.edu/waltr.
I hope to see you at one or more of the events this fall.
