2021 Tax Seminar

Ask anyone about 2021 and they will say it has been an extraordinary year in so many ways – COVID-19, business shut-downs, business re-openings, working from home and government initiatives.  In an effort to keep members of the oil and gas industry informed of the many programs put forth by the federal government, as well as industry tax issues, we have once again asked Arnett Carbis Toothman llp (ACT) to present their annual Oil and Natural Gas Accounting and Tax Seminar.  The event will be presented on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.  As much as we prefer face-to-face interaction, this year the format will be changed to a virtual Webinar via WEBEX due to COVID-19 restrictions.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Gas and Oil Association of WV (GO-WV), the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association (PIOGA), and the Southeastern Ohio Oil and Gas Association (SOOGA.)  Tax and accounting issues affecting West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania will be discussed.  Time will be allotted for questions during the Webinar and the ACT presenters will be available for questions and consultations by phone or email after the Webinar.
