The tax schools focus on helping the people who prepare tax returns for farms and small businesses keep up with tax changes each year.
For the fourth year, UGA will also offer three Agricultural Tax Issues and Form Preparation Workshops. These are for tax preparers who have many farm clients and who attend one of the two-day tax schools.
Four Georgia Sites, Dates
The tax schools are set for four Georgia sites and dates: Gainesville Nov. 16-17, Tifton Nov. 20-21, Macon Nov. 28-29 and Statesboro Dec. 12-13.
Each day of classes will begin at 8:15 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. The sessions will focus on farm issues, electronic filing, new tax legislation, issues for older taxpayers, depreciation and many other farm and small business tax matters.
The issues-and-forms workshops will be in Jefferson Nov. 15, Tifton Nov. 22, Macon Nov. 27 and Statesboro Dec. 12. Each begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.
