Sponsored small business tax seminars February 2019 Tax News

Beginning this month, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) will begin sponsoring Small Business Tax Seminars that will be held throughout the state. These informative, half-day seminars will feature representatives and experts from some of California's state departments, such as CDTFA, Employment Development Department (EDD), Franchise Tax Board (FTB), and Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz).  Additionally, representatives from IRS, Small Business Administration (SBA), and Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) may attend as well depending on availability.

Small business owners and tax professionals can learn up-to-date information about compliance issues, filing requirements, and changes in tax laws. Questions about specific tax related issues will be answered and contacts can be made with these agencies for future issues or concerns. Presentations may include avoiding common sales and use tax problems, employee versus independent contractor, common forms of business ownership, better business through keeping better records, and more.

These seminars are free and are an important asset in the state of California’s education and outreach efforts.
