Farm Tax, Estate Law Expert to Present Free Webinar

For many farm families, managing taxes and decisions about what happens to the farm after they leave the business can be very difficult.

Ever-changing laws and regulations make it even more complicated.

Roger McEowen, a professor of agricultural law and taxation at the Washburn University School of Law, will present ‘Planning in Uncertain Times: Farm and Ranch Estate and Income Tax Planning,” beginning at 7 p.m.
