Continuing Education Events and Summer Conferences
There are a couple of online continuing education events that I will be conducting soon, and the dates are set for two summer national conferences in 2021.
Upcoming continuing education events – it’s the topic of today’s post.
Top Developments in Agricultural Law and Tax
On Monday, January 11, beginning at 11:00 a.m. (cst), I will be hosting a two-hour CLE/CPE webinar on the top developments in agricultural law and agricultural taxation of 2020. I will not only discuss the developments, but project how the developments will impact producers and others in the agricultural sector and what steps need to be taken as a result of the developments in the law and tax realm. This is an event that is not only for practitioners, but producers also. It’s an opportunity to hear the developments and provide input and discussion. A special lower rate is provided for those not claiming continuing education credit.

Tax Update Webinar – CAA of 2021
On January 21, I will be hosting a two-hour webinar on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. This event will begin at 10:00 a.m. (cst) and run until noon. The new law makes significant changes to the existing PPP and other SBA loan programs, CFAP, and contains many other provisions that apply to businesses and individuals. Also, included in the new law are provisions that extend numerous provisions that were set to expire at the end of 2020. The PPP discussion is of critical importance to many taxpayers at the present moment, especially the impact of PPP loans not being included in income and simultaneously being deductible if used to pay for qualified business expenses. Associated income tax basis issues loom large and vary by entity type.

Summer National Conferences
Mark your calendars now for the law school’s two summer 2021 events that I conduct on farm income tax and farm estate and business planning. Yes, there are two locations for 2021 – one east and one west. Each event will be simulcast live over the web if you aren’t able to attend in-person. The eastern conference is first and is set for June 7-8 at Shawnee Lodge and Conference Center near West Portsmouth, Ohio. The location is about two hours east of Cincinnati, 90 minutes south of Columbus, Ohio, and just over two hours from Lexington, KY. I am presently in the process of putting the agenda together. A room block will be established for those interested in staying at the Lodge. For more information about Shawnee Lodge and Conference Center, you made click here: https://www.shawneeparklodge.com/
The second summer event will be held on August 2-3 in Missoula, Montana at the Hilton Garden Inn. Missoula is beautifully situated on three rivers and in the midst of five mountain ranges. It is also within three driving hours of Glacier National Park, and many other scenic and historic places. The agenda will soon be available, and a room block will also be established at the hotel.
