2004 Income Tax School - 11 Virginia Locations - 2 Seminars
Farm Business Management Update, October/November 2004
By L. Leon Geyer, Virginia Tech, Department of Agricultural & Applied Economics, Professor
This year is the 44th year that Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Tech's Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, the Virginia Department of Taxation, and the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have cooperated in bringing programs to the people who assist taxpayers in preparing and filing federal and state income tax returns. The Income Tax Seminar is Virginia's largest workshop for tax practitioners.
Faculty from Virginia Tech, staff from the IRS, private tax practitioners, and the Virginia Department of Taxation will examine new tax laws and their implications and will examine case studies to interpret new regulations.
The Virginia Tech Income Tax Seminars are scheduled at ten Virginia locations this year. The Seminars will occur in November and December 2004. They feature an intensive study of tax law and regulations governing individual, farm, and small business taxes. They are designed for people with income tax experience who assist taxpayers in preparing and filing income tax returns. Preparation of both federal and state taxes will be covered. The topics for general session and special sessions on farm and forestry taxation can be found in the following pages.
This year we are offering a new seminar covering the basics. The "Introductory Tax Preparation Seminar" is designed for those who are new or returning to tax preparation and want a course in basic preparation. Dr. Guido van der Hoeven of North Carolina State University presents the seminar.
Brochures for the Seminars have been mailed to tax practitioners, CPAs, lawyers, Commissioners of the Revenue, and other past attendees. Brochures are also available in Extension Unit and District Offices. Registration forms can be duplicated, or contact the tax seminar registrar assistant.
