Times, dates for tribal workshops changed
Nevada tribal agricultural producers can learn about record-keeping methods, as well as tax management and insurance strategies that contribute to successful agribusiness operations at half-day seminar offered around the state.
The program, Tribal Agriculture Record-Keeping and Tax Management, will be conducted as a half-day seminar at separate reservations.
The program is sponsored by University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, with funding provided by the USDA Risk Management Agency.
These workshops will provide an overview of federal tax issues related to tribal agricultural producers, including review of tax forms 1099 and 1040 as well as filing requirements. In addition, record-keeping procedures using QuickBooks software will be presented along with a discussion of balance sheet items such as depreciation alternatives.
Lunch will be provided and two door prizes (QuickBooks Pro) will be given away at each workshop.
