Badgerland Financial to Host Four Tax and Accounting Seminars

The afternoon session, "Buy, Lease or Custom Hire It?" will be led by Paul Dietman and Calvin Sipes to help farmers evaluate their purchase and lease decisions.

Dietmann, Badgerland Financial's Emerging Markets Specialist and co-author of the book, "Fearless Farm Finances," will cover how to determine the costs to own and operate farm equipment. Dietmann will also show attendees how to do a break-even analysis and use it to determine whether to purchase machinery or custom hire.

Sipes of AgDirect will walk attendees through a variety of equipment leasing options, including what is considered a true tax lease vs. a finance lease. He will discuss multiple financing options available through AgDirect.

There is no charge to attend. All seminars will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with lunch provided. RSVPs are requested prior to each seminar by phone at (855) 608-8777 or online at under "Events."
