FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — As the saying goes, there’s nothing more sure than death and
taxes. Planning for both is essential to transfer a farm business to a successor,
and understanding their impact is necessary to make a successful plan.
With that in mind, Kristine Tidgren, the director of the Center for Agricultural Law
and Taxation at Iowa State Univeristy, will present a session on agricultural tax
and estate planning at the eighth annual Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental
Law Conference, hosted by the National Agricultual Law Center.
“The Biden administration has proposed tax policies if enacted, would significantly
change estate and business transition planning within the agricultural sector,” Tidgren
said. “All agricultural producers and landowners should be aware of these proposals
and monitor developments.”
In addition to her center appointment, Tidgren is an adjunct assistant professor in the Agricultural Education and Studies Department.
Tidgren’s work focuses on studying and interpreting laws affecting agricultural taxation,
as well as keeping tax professionals, practicing attorneys, producers and agribusiness
professionals informed about legal developments impacting their businesses. Tidgren’s
center is part of the part of the Agricultural and Food Law Consortium led by the
National Agricultural Law Center.
“Kristine Tidgren’s expertise in agricultural tax and estate planning is excellent
and will absolutely benefit conference registrants who attend her session,” NALC Director
Harrison Pittman said. “I am looking forward to hearing her perspective on this important
The conference is scheduled for June 10 – 11 with Tidgren speaking on Friday at 2:10
p.m. CDT. Those interested can register and learn more about the conference and continuing
