AmericanHort to Release Crucial Tax Law Information During January Webinar


Columbus, Ohio – AmericanHort will co-host a free Comprehending the New Tax Law webinar on January 31 at 3 p.m. with K-Coe Isom, a national tax consulting leader for food and agriculture-related industries. During the 60-minute webinar, green industry business owners and decision makers will learn important changes to consider
to reap financial benefits from the new tax law.

"We have received multiple calls about the new tax law, and we knew it was time to pull in top industry experts to provide our members advice on the topic," said Ken Fisher, president and CEO of AmericanHort. “This is one of many initiatives AmericanHort will lead in 2018 to help the industry perform better, grow faster, and prepare for
the future.”

With a combined 45 years of green industry-related accounting and tax policy experience, Ryan Stroschein and Doug Claussen of K-Coe Isom will provide expert advice to help webinar attendees profit from the new changes. Attendees will learn whether or not to change their operating model; how and what to write off in the next five years; changes to prepare for in the cash accounting model; and how estate tax exemptions should be managed.

Attendees will also hear from AmericanHort's Senior Vice President, Craig Regelbrugge, and its Director of Governmental Affairs, Tal Coley, who will ensure all important topics are addressed.

The webinar is free, but pre-registration is required by January 30 at AmericanHort.org. In addition, AmericanHort Premium members who join the webinar will receive a free, one-on-one consultation with K-Coe Isom at a later date.
