AUBURN, Alabama—Alabama farmers can learn more about how the new tax law affects them individually and their farming operation at tax bill workshops from Alabama Extension’s Agribusiness Management Team. After the training, famers will be better equipped to navigate the new tax provisions.

Dr. Robert Tufts, an Alabama Extension farm management specialist and attorney, will conduct the workshops at 13 locations during February and March from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Three exceptions include the Feb. 1 Fairhope workshop from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Additionally, the March 1 workshop in Opelika will be from from 8:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., while the Shorter workshop lasts from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The workshop will highlight estate tax changes, individual tax changes and business tax changes in the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The workshop will also include a comparison of pass-through entity taxes to C-corporations taxes using case studies showing effects on small-, medium- and large-sized operations.
