Risk Management Hawaii program of UH-CTAHR is bringing back Michael Holl to give an updated lesson for farmers and ranchers about business taxes. This workshop will help you manage your labor, financial and legal risks. Holl is an enrolled agent who is a federally-authorized tax practitioner, licensed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to negotiate with the IRS on behalf of taxpayers.
Farming and Taxes is a workshop specifically designed to enable Hawaii farmers to lower their tax liabilities by a better understanding of: business deductions; tax preparation and record keeping to minimize taxes and chances of an audit; business entities for your farm; how employment laws and independent contractor requirements affect your business; how to obtain relief from 75-90 percent of federal penalties for violating independent contractor/employment laws; and special provisions in the tax code regarding farm income averaging to significantly lower taxes resulting from “bumper” crops.
