The Washburn Agricultural Law and Tax Report (WALTR) focuses on legal and tax issues that agricultural producers, agricultural businesses, and rural landowners face. Some issues are encountered on a daily basis; others may arise on a more cyclical basis. Many issues illustrate how the legal and tax systems in the United States uniquely treat agriculture and the singular relationship between the farm family and the farm firm. In addition, there are basic legal principles that have wide application throughout the entire economy, and those principles are discussed in annotations, articles, and media resources at the WALTR website at http://washburnlaw.edu/waltr.
For students and those involved in agriculture either as producers of commodities, consumers, or in the agricultural industry, WALTR will help you gain an ability to identify agricultural legal problems and become acquainted with the basic legal framework surrounding agricultural issues and the tax concepts peculiar to agriculture. It will become evident that agricultural law and taxation is a very dynamic field that has wide application to everyday situations.
WALTR is also designed to be a research tool for practitioners with agricultural-related clients. Many technical issues are addressed and practitioners can also find seminars to attend where the concepts discussed on the website are more fully explored. In addition, media resources address agricultural law and taxation in action as it applies to current events impacting the sector. Practitioners can also find technical tax information via the CliftonLarsonAllen Farm Tax Network subscription service at http://www.claconnect.com/farmTaxNetwork/.
