Description: Casualty Loss and Income Tax Deductions Related to Timber and Landscape Trees
Timber or landscape trees destroyed by recent fires, hurricanes or other storms are “casualty losses” that may allow the property owners to take a deduction on their federal income tax returns. To help timber owners, as well as home owners, who suffered timber or landscape tree damages with their tax reporting, this webinar will focus on the new tax law changes that Congress passed in 2017 that affect the casualty loss deductions starting in the 2018 tax year.

Who should attend: 

The Produce Safety Rule requires all farms that grow, pack, harvest and/or hold covered produce, making over $25,000 in annual produce sales (average over the last 3 years) and not qualifying for an exemption from the Rule to attend this training.

For a step-by-step guide of who needs to attend this training click here. This is a one-page document that provides a summary of exemptions under the PS Rule. Be aware that for exempt or qualified exempt farms that are not required to attend a PSA Grower training there are other requirements that must be fulfilled.

The PSA Grower Training Course satisfies the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in §112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’

Course information:

The trainers will spend approximately seven hours of instruction time covering content contained in these seven modules:

  1. Introduction to Produce Safety
  2. Worker Health, Hygiene, and Training
  3. Soil Amendments
  4. Wildlife, Domesticated Animals, and Land Use
  5. Agricultural Water (Part I: Production Water; Part II: Post harvest Water)
  6. Post harvest Handling and Sanitation
  7. How to Develop a Farm Food Safety Plan
  8. In addition to learning about produce safety best practices, key parts of the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements are outlined within each module.


Benefits of attending the course:


The course will provide a foundation of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and co-management information, FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements, and details on how to develop a farm food safety plan. Individuals who participate in this course are expected to gain a basic understanding of:

Requirements in the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and how to meet them.
Microorganisms relevant to produce safety and where they may be found on the farm.
How to identify microbial risks, practices that reduce risks, and how to begin implementing produce safety practices on the farm.
Parts of a farm food safety plan and how to begin writing one.

Participants will be eligible to receive a certificate from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) that verifies they have completed the training course. To receive an AFDO certificate, a participant must be present for the entire training and submit the appropriate paperwork to their trainer at the end of the course.
