Kristine Tidgren has been named the director of the Iowa State University Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation.

Tidgren joined the extension-focused center in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences as a staff attorney in 2013, and has been serving as its assistant director for the past two years. William Edwards, an emeritus professor of economics and extension farm economist, had served for the past year as the center's interim director.

The Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation, established by the Iowa Board of Regents in 2006, provides timely, objective information to agricultural producers, professionals and agribusinesses on the application of important developments in agricultural law and taxation, and is a primary source of professional educational training in agricultural law and taxation. One of the center's programs is the annual farm income tax school, which Iowa State has conducted for nearly 45 years.

Tidgren's work focuses on studying and interpreting laws that impact the agricultural industry, specifically agricultural taxation.

"I'm excited to carry on the work of the center and provide education and information regarding new tax interpretations," Tidgren said.

Tidgren grew up on a farm near Logan, Iowa. Before coming to Iowa State she worked for a legal publishing company and as a practicing attorney. She received her law degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1998 and her bachelor's degree in journalism from Iowa State in 1989.

Since she started at the center, Tidgren has written articles and blog posts keeping tax professionals, practicing attorneys, producers and agribusiness professionals informed about legal developments impacting their business. She writes technical chapters for the National Income Tax Workbook, articles for farm publications and is frequently interviewed by media regarding tax and agricultural law issues.

In addition, Tidgren speaks to thousands of professionals and producers each year regarding tax and agricultural law topics. She also organizes and provides instruction at center-hosted seminars, including the annual federal income tax schools.

Since 2016, Tidgren has been teaching a four-credit agricultural law class to upper-level undergraduate students and is an adjunct assistant professor of agricultural law in the Agricultural Education and Studies Department.

Tidgren also regularly collaborates with other agricultural law and tax professionals throughout the country, including those from the Rural Tax Education Committee, the American Agricultural Law Association and the Land Grant University Tax Education Foundation.

After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster Dr Oriafo that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr Oriafo and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days my ex will come back begging. I thanked him in earnest hoping he will come back to me because I miss him so much.To my very surprise on the 3rd day he came back begging and asking me to accept him back and he will never leave me again.

I am Monica David from Ontario Canada, i want to testify about the good service of Dr. Ugo Wonders living in USA for helping me bring back my fiancee who left me because of a prostitute. it was a terrible and depressing time when my fiancee whom we were supposed to be married in two months cancelled our wedding because of a prostitute who cast a spell on him and stole him away. i was searching for help online when i saw a review about Dr. Ugo of General Spell Temple, i then contacted him for help. I followed all his instruction accordingly as he assured and guaranteed me that my Fiancee will be back in 48 hours, to my greatest surprise in exactly two days after the spell was cast, my Fiance called me and started to apologize for leaving me because of another lady. i waited for two months in which we are now married before i could testify and right now, we are one happy family and its going to remain like this for ever.. all thanks to Dr. Ugo Wonders of General Spell Temple. you can contact Dr. Ugo for any relationship problem through his direct email : or call him directly on +1 386-336-9876
