Farm Record Keeping and Tax Preparation

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016; 6pm – 8pm; $5/family

Running a farm is hard work, but it’s even harder if you don’t have a good record keeping system! With good recordkeeping you can improve your farm business performance and make your life easier. Get back to the basics with this workshop that will cover business structure, accounting and bookkeeping terms and methods, important financial reports, and best practices along with tax planning and important tax considerations for farm businesses. Instructors for this workshop will be Lindsay Eckman and Shannon Mardino, Farm Business Advisors with Farm Credit East in Mayville, NY.

This event is part of the 2016-2017 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Program is made possible through the generous support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.)
