Regional farm estate conference Jan. 25
Many North Carolina counties have seen a tremendous increase in value in farmland in recent years and it continues to grow in value. Too many farms have to be sold to development and others just to pay inheritance taxes.
N.C. livestock producers and farmers are invited to participate in an estate planning conference scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 25. The regional educational conference will present current updates and changes affecting estate planning, assessing the farm resource, long-term health care, probate and ag taxes, retirement management, etc. to mention a few.
The conference will be held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Franklin County Center, in Louisburg in the Annex meeting room with registration from 8-9 a.m. The program should conclude around 3 p.m. There is a $20 fee to attend the day-long conference. Lunch, refreshments and resource materials will be provided.
If you plan to attend, call the Extension Center at 919-496-3344 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference brochure with agenda can be found at FranklinCountyFarmFresh.com or www.franklin.ces.ncsu.edu.
