A tax management program sponsored by the NDSU Extension Service and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be offered Nov. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon CST at 10 interactive video sites across North Dakota.
The program provides an opportunity for agricultural producers and tax preparers to learn and ask questions about tax management alternatives while producers still have time to implement year-end tax management decisions.
The program will include an overview of when to accelerate or defer income in conjunction with expense timing to manage tax liabilities now and for the future. New reporting forms in 2015, due to the Affordable Care Act, will be explained.
