Join Cornell Cooperative Extension Farm Business Management Specialists from across the state for their virtual Farmer Tax School, offered in October 2021 through January 2022. This educational series offers courses designed to inform and empower farm managers to better understand their tax obligations, management strategies, and improve farm profitability. For more information and a complete list of all Farmer Tax School events, click here.  You can register for one, some of, or all courses.

Each course, outlined below, has its own fee. There are scholarships available for those experiencing financial hardship. The courses will be offered virtually via live and interactive zoom webinar. For those without internet access, there will be a call-in option available with the opportunity to receive paper copies of the presentation via mail. Each presentation will be recorded and sent to those who are registered (even if you can't attend the live event).

This series has options for agricultural producers of all shapes, sizes, and time in business. 

A three-part series for farms that are already filing a Schedule F covering tax planning and goals, handling farm profits/losses, and strategies to improve your tax position while also working positively with your accountant/tax preparer. Our first session will provide an overview of tax planning, the management of tax liability, and assessing your record keeping system. Second session will delve into everything Schedule F - depreciation and classifying revenues and expenses. The final session will be led by a professional tax-preparer who will introduce tax planning strategies and the timeline for implementation with ample time for questions and discussion.

This series is $25 per farm.  Register online here. Registrations required by October 8.

There are sponsorship opportunities available to help off-set the cost of the program. Farm Financial Services Providers are encouraged to join as a sponsor. This will add their name to a service directory that will be made available electronically and in print to all participants. Sponsorships are available for $100/organization and will also collect information about services offered, location, and contact information.

Updated Meeting Guidelines

Effective June 1, 2021, the size limit for outdoor field meetings (including open-air, well ventilated barns) may be held up to 500 participants.

Effective June 11, 2021, the size limit for indoor meetings may be held up to 250 participants.  If the indoor event is held at a business, the business may implement other requirements for participants in accordance with NYS and CDC guidelines, which may include requiring proof of vaccination, separate individuals and designate part of the establishment based on vaccination status, and require masks/social distance for all patrons or just those unvaccinated.

For both types of meetings, masks are only required for unvaccinated attendees and they also need to maintain 6' social distance during the event.  Vaccination status is based on self-reporting.  Masks and hand sanitizer will be available for participants.  The NYS, CDC, and Cornell University guidelines will be monitored and we will adjust meeting guidance accordingly.
