When commodity prices go down, it’s important to keep financial books on the ranch for more than just tax time. Four Quicken for Farm & Ranch Record Keeping workshops will be taught in the Panhandle in January and February.
Nebraska Extension Educators, will teach how to use Quicken, a popular commercial record-keeping package that is user friendly, inexpensive and easy to find. Quicken is flexible for ag and non-ag business enterprises and separates out family living expenses.
Quicken's checkbook register makes for a familiar environment to begin computerized record-keeping. Quicken comes with home and general business income and expense categories, but Educators will show how to easily import farm categories to match the tax Schedule F.
