Cornell Cooperative Extension offers tips for meeting your farm business tax planning goals

Join Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm Business Management Specialists from across the state for their virtual course “Income Tax Planning for Farms that File a Schedule F”. This three-part series for farms that are established and already filing a Schedule F will be held on Wednesdays, October 13, 20, and 27 from 7pm – 8:30pm.

The first session will provide an overview of tax planning, the management of tax liability, and assessing your record keeping system.

The final session will be led by a professional tax-preparer who will introduce tax planning strategies and the timeline for implementation with ample time for questions and discussion.
