The UNL Extension Service can answer producers’ questions concerning planning for the future.
How do I get ready to make a plan?
How do I review my existing plan?
How can I be a good consumer of legal and estate planning services?
What have others done? How has it worked for them?
A workshop will be held March 28 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. CT at the 4-H building at the Red Willow fairgrounds in McCook. The workshop offers a reliable, useful discussion of business, family and tax issues involved in passing on the family farm or ranch, and the legal tools that are used to address those issues.
Topics to be discussed include: determining goals, family dynamics and expectations in a business setting, financial viability, the transfer process, estate and gift tax, inheritance tax, efficient methods of transfer, probate, wills, trusts, titling, basis, long-term care, Medicaid, powers of attorney, and use of entities.
Experienced educators Dave Goeller, Director of the North Central Risk Management Education Center, and Joe Hawbaker, Agriculture Law Attorney, will present the program.
