Program Description and Learning Objectives

The Kansas State University Department of Agricultural Economics invites you to attend the 74th annual Kansas Income Tax Institute. The program is for tax professionals and is designed to provide up‐to‐date training on current tax law, regulations, and updates.

This year’s program will review recent cases and rulings and key legislation, provide an in‐depth review and analysis of a number of tax areas, and cover newly enacted regulations and procedures critical to tax practitioners. The program stresses practical information to facilitate the filing of individual, small‐business, and farm returns. By participating in this program, participants will: a) Understand the topics below; b) Be able to recognize how to apply this understanding and use it in filing accurate and efficient tax returns for their clients. 

The K-State Department of Agricultural Economics has been approved as a registered sponsor on the National Registry of CPE sponsors of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), for Group Internet Based programs. The sponsor identification number is 141219. The online programs below now qualify for CPE credit for Kansas accountants. The in-person programs provide credit for Kansas accountants, but are NOT certified by NASBA, so attendees from other states will need to determine if this meets requirements for their state.

Participants will earn 16 CPE credits for accountants and 16 hours of CLE credit for attorneys. There are 15 hours of IRS credit for EAs and OTRPs and 15 hours for CFPs, as well as 6 hours of real estate credit available.
