The annual tax practitioner's seminars offered in November and December by Auburn University's Outreach Program Office will add agricultural tax workshops at three locations this year.

The agricultural tax workshops will be taught by a team of Alabama Cooperative Extension System economists beginning on Nov. 18 in Florence and Dec. 8 in Auburn.

“Recalling the roots of this traditional program as a Farm Tax School, we are offering a special in-depth workshop on Agricultural Tax Issues,” says Scott Greenwood, OPO program developer.

The agricultural workshop will be available after the regular seminar on the first day at each of the locations. Participants will use a special 300-page textbook written by the lead author of the text used in the traditional two-day school.

“Despite rising costs in most educational endeavors, the AU Tax Practitioner Seminar remains a tremendous value,” says Greenwood. “The tuition cost of $85 has remained the same for five years.”

Tuition includes the National Income Tax Workbook, produced by the Land Grant University Tax Education Foundation, instruction and provides continuing education credits. The Internal Revenue Service and the Alabama State Department of Revenue will provide instructors.

The agricultural workshop tuition is $49 ($74 if registration is received less than 10 days before the date of the seminar).

The location and dates of the remaining tax seminars are:

  • Nov. 20-21, Huntsville, University of Alabama-Huntsville, University Center.

  • Nov. 24-25, Jefferson State Community College, Northeast Campus.

  • Dec. 2-3, Bessemer, Bessemer Civic Center.

  • Dec. 4-5, Montgomery, Auburn University-Montgomery, Taylor Center.

  • Dec. 8-9, Auburn University Hotel and Dixon Conference Center.

  • Dec. 11-12, Mobile, Mobile Convention Center.
