Seminars address Iowa farm income tax issues

Roger McEowen

During November and December 2006, ISU Extension held the 33rd annual series of Farm Income Tax Schools. The series attracted more than 1,200 participants to eight locations across Iowa. The Farm Income Tax Schools are designed for tax preparation professionals, including attorneys and accountants.

Participants appreciate ISU Extension bringing the university’s technical expertise to them all across the state, said Roger McEowen, Leonard Dolezal Professor in Agricultural Law at Iowa State and an instructor for the tax schools. “Many make comments to us personally that the schools are very important to their practices.” 

Participants report they value the focus on Iowa taxes, the practical suggestions on office procedures and practices and how the speakers make complex issues easy to understand.
