Topics will include the current agricultural economic climate and practical tools to assist clients, whether they are producers, creditors, or agricultural businesses. We will also cover hot topics in agricultural law, environmental issues, and more. The day will include a number of expert speakers and panelists, as well as an hour of ethics credit.
Friday, September 22 - Agricultural Business and Tax Planning Seminar: Transferring the closely-held business can be challenging. This session is designed to explain how to take advantage of the partnership structure to both build the net worth of the younger generation while providing for the comfortable exit of the older generation. A case study (including federal tax forms) will be used throughout the session. The session will cover an overview of partnership taxation (including limited liability companies taxed as partnerships). Topics will include tracking basis, various debt issues and transactions between partners and the partnership; a review of gifting and sale of partnership interests; the use of guaranteed payments to shift income as well as to reward extra effort and capital contributions; a discussion of exit strategies with a focus on the retiring partner provisions afforded to partnerships under IRC §736, and much more! We will also look at top estate planning dangers for agricultural clients and conclude the day with an hour of ethics credit.
