Your Timber and Your Taxes Workshop Set for Nov. 7 in Jonesboro

JONESBORO – A free Your Timber and Your Taxes workshop will be offered on November 7, 2019, at the Dr. Charles H. Garrett Community Center in Jonesboro, Louisiana. Attorney Paul Spillers will provide valuable information on tax changes for timberland owners, IRS categories for timber ownership, return preparation, and key tax issues.  Professional conservationists with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will discuss how to care for your land’s natural resources to ensure your timber is sustainable for future generations.
