The National Thoroughbred Racing Association will host a free equine tax forum in Lexington April 6.

The event will be held at the Marriott Griffin Gate hotel from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Forum speakers will include Thomas "Tad" Davis, a partner in the Washington, D.C., law firm Davis & Harman and author of numerous guides on tax matters affecting horse owners; Los Angeles tax attorney Richard Craigo; and other tax law experts from the Lexington area.

The forum will consist of four sessions, each including a Q&A. Topics include hobby/loss criteria for horse owners; sales/like-kind exchanges; depreciation and expensing opportunities; and partnerships and LLCs.  

"This year’s forum has been expanded to cover the hobby/loss provision and the new depreciation schedule, among many other issues,” said Peggy Hendershot, senior vice president of legislative affairs for the NTRA. “This forum is an unparalleled opportunity to ask questions of the country’s top equine tax attorneys, and we encourage both owners and breeders to participate,”

Attendance is limited to 100. To reserve a spot, contact Joe Bacigalupo of the NTRA by phone at 1-800-792-6872, ext. 677, or via email at joeb@ntra.com
