Farm Bureaus plan ACA meeting

The Marshall-Putnam and Bureau County Farm Bureau and COUNTRY Financial have teamed up to help farmers understand the Affordable Care Act, the marketplace, identify important dates and follow steps to getting covered. Small business employer responsibilities will also be covered as well.

Dan Eiten, the Affordable Care Act program coordinator for the Bureau and Putnam County Health Department, will be the first speaker. He will be followed by Kelly Hardy, CPA and senior manager at Clifton Larson Allen LLP. Hardy focuses on serving the agribusiness industry with tax planning, compliance and taxation matters. There will be time at the end for questions.

The session will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Feb. 18 at the former Steelworker's Hall in Hennepin. To register to attend, contact the Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468 or the Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau at 309-364-2501. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.
