Farm tax, estate law expert to present free webinar on Nov. 29

K-State’s McEowen to outline ‘foundational truths’ of managing tough decisions

Nov. 16, 2021

MANHATTAN, Kan. – 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.

Women Managing the Farm and Kansas State University’s Department of Agricultural Economics will host a nationally recognized speaker on both topics during a webinar planned for Monday, Nov. 29.

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.

The online session is free and can be accessed at www.agmanager.info, Look for a link directly to the session in the ‘Upcoming Events’ menu, or at www.womenmanagingthefarm.com.

McEowen will discuss the “foundational truths and tools available to farmers and ranchers” as they consider estate and tax planning, according to information provided by K-State’s Women Managing the Farm program.

The session is designed to provide factual, up-to-date information for farm and ranch families.

McEowen presents approximately 80-100 seminars annually across the United States for farmers, agricultural business professional, lawyers and other tax professionals. He is a guest on two radio programs – including K-State’s weekly Agriculture Today program – which reach nearly 2 million listeners from New York to California, as well as Sirius XM channel 147.

He is also a weekly guest on RFD-TV, where he discusses various agricultural law and tax topics with that program’s hosts.

In addition to his public programs, McEowen teaches an undergraduate course in agricultural law at Kansas State University and is a visiting professor of law at the University of Arkansas. He is a member of the Iowa and Kansas Bar Associations, and is admitted to practice in Nebraska.

His Nov. 29 talk is free to view, but interested persons are asked to register in advance. More information is also available by contacting Rich Llewelyn at 785-532-1504 or rvl@ksu.edu.


About Women Managing the Farm

Women Managing the Farm is a program to connect women involved in many areas of agriculture. The project builds upon the knowledge that women play an active role in all aspects of financial and risk management of the farm.

“The goal of this project is to prepare modern farm women with resources that enable them to utilize and manage their farm interests effectively,” said Robin Reid, an agricultural economist with K-State Research and Extension. “The project helps farm women to be successfully prepared to participate in multiple farm roles by having the training, risk management tools, and professional resources available to them.”

The 2022 Women Managing the Farm Conference will be held Feb. 9-11 at the Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center in Manhattan. Organizers say the conference will address production, price, human, financial and legal risks of farm women at all levels.
