|UND, CPA Society sponsor tax institutes|
The University of North Dakota and the North Dakota Society of Certified Public Accountants are co-sponsoring a tax institute to be held at two locations throughout the state:
* Nov. 14-15 at the Holiday Inn in Fargo;
* Nov. 28-29 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck.
Both conferences will feature sessions on agricultural and business issues, individual taxpayer problems, investments, and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) matters.
Featured speakers will include:
* Neil E. Harl, distinguished professor in agriculture and emeritus professor of economics at Iowa State University, who will discuss tax issues relating to agricultural law as well as estate and business planning. Harl has published numerous books and articles in farm and financial publications, has been the recipient of more than 30 major awards, and has served on six advisory bodies throughout his career in finance.
* John Connors, experienced professor, accomplished tax consultant, and nationally known speaker, who will review individual taxpayer problems, investments, and IRS issues. Connors is well-versed in income and estate tax planning, as well as individual, partnership, and corporate tax return preparation and research.
Continuing education hours will be awarded to attendees and will vary from 14 to 16 hours, depending on the accrediting organization. UND will award 1.6 credits for attending both days or 0.8 hours for attending one day at either institute.
Early bird registration is $205 to attend both conference days and $125 to attend one day of sessions (includes conference materials, continuing education hours, and meals). The deadline for early registration is Nov. 13 for the Bismarck institute.
