Seminar to address retirement, estate planning

August 29, 2006

Preserving, protecting and passing on farm assets are major topics with horse farm landowners and other farm families when doing retirement and estate planning.

The Baltimore County Office of the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension has designed a one-day seminar to help.

This program will be given Thursday, Sept. 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in White Marsh, Md.

Intended for horse breeders, horse council members and wine growers, the program will discuss retirement, income sources, land preservation, insurance, risk management and the legal aspects of estate planning tools.

"Tax laws change every few years and it is important to review your present situation and adjust your plans," the Extension office said in a press release.


"In addition, land preservation programs have changed and are expected to be well funded in the next year. Learn how this can benefit you."

The instructors are experienced, certified professionals who are not selling services or products, the Extension office said.

Admission is $30 for each family member and includes lunch.

Pre-registration is re-quired.

For registration materials or more information, call the Extension office in Baltimore County at 1-410-666-1022.
