Learn Tax Fundamentals from the Pros

Thursday, June 11, 2009

If filing and understanding what is deemed as complicated tax documents is not your forte, the Small Business Development Center is ready to help you overcome the challenge. On Thursday, June 11, 2009, the Small Business Development Center will hold a tax workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Belcher Hall, Room 436 on the campus of SC State University.

During the tax workshop, taxpayers will learn how to apply the tax law and how to successfully meet their tax responsibilities. Presenters will include professionals from the Internal Revenue Service, the SC Department of Revenue, and the SC Employment Security Commission.

Those who want to learn more about record keeping, types of business entities, and employment taxes, will be taught by credible instructors like certified public accountants, enrolled agents, and revenue agents from the SC Department of Revenue and the SC Employment Security Commission.

John Goodwin, regional director for the Small Business Development Center, says that having credible presenters is one reason why you should attend the tax workshop. “Presenters are from state and federal agencies,” says Goodwin. “This means the information disseminated is presented by the authorities,” he continues.

The tax workshop will also provide an overview of forms 940, 941, and 944, including electronic filing and electronic federal payment system due dates, information that is significant for every taxpayer. “Tax matters are something that we can’t live without it, and it is important that we get the best understanding we can,” states Goodwin.
