The University of Kentucky has scheduled 14 income tax seminars during November and December for tax preparers.

These seminars are for people who prepare income tax returns. These two-day workshops provide the latest updates on new rulings and tax law changes, said Dick Trimble, University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. The seminars are conducted by the UK department of agricultural economics in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service and Kentucky Revenue Cabinet.

The two days will focus on individual and small business problems, agricultural issues, investments, retirement and more, said Trimble, state coordinator.

"We have had some major changes in our income tax laws, rules and regulations over the past year," he said. "If you are a tax practitioner this seminar is for you or if you use a tax practitioner, you may want to encourage them to participate."

The workshop is designed for accountants, tax preparers, attorneys, enrolled agents, certified financial planners, banks and financial institutions, insurance professionals, estate planners and corporate business managers. Professional continuing education credits can be earned by participating in the seminars.

There are no prerequisites and no advance preparation is needed, Trimble said.

The seminars will be held across the state with the first one set for Nov. 12 to 13 in Frankfort. Subsequent ones will be held in Burlington, Hopkinsville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Somerset, Owensboro, Morehead, Bardstown, Jenny Wiley State Park, Paducah, Lexington, Maysville and Louisville.

The registration deadline for the Frankfort workshop is Oct. 29. Limited registration forms are available at county Extension offices. For more information contact Carol Eads, UK Income Tax Seminar Office, 640 S. Broadway -Suite 210, Lexington, KY 40508 or (859) 252-3769.
