Seminars designed for professional tax preparers with at least one year of tax preparation experience will be offered in 14 locations around Kentucky.

The 2014 University of Kentucky Income Tax Seminar Program is designed to present updates on federal and state tax preparation for tax professionals, enrolled agents, certified public accountants, certified financial planners and attorneys.

The two-day seminars are presented by the UK Department of Agricultural Economics in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the UK Cooperative Extension Service, in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service and the Kentucky Department of Revenue. The sessions will cover individual and small business issues, including the latest changes to tax laws and federal updates on new tax legislation, agricultural issues, rulings and cases, IRS issues and retirement. Kentucky updates will include individual income tax issues and corporate and business returns, among others. This year’s seminars include two hours of ethics content.

Registrants will receive the 2014 National Income Tax Workbook, a production of the Land Grant University Tax Education Foundation Inc. Chapters in this textbook are available only to sponsors and participants of tax schools. Seminar participants will also receive a searchable CD that covers the National Income Tax Workbooks from at least the previous five years; the U.S. Master Tax Guide; Kentucky Department of Revenue update and the IRS’s Farmer’s Tax Guide.
