Business owners, entrepreneurs, and individuals who would like to start a business or learn more about how to comply with California’s often complex tax laws are invited to attend a free Small Business Tax Seminar and Resource Expo in Bishop on Thursday, July 28, 2016.
California State Board of Equalization (BOE) Member George Runner is sponsoring the event with State Senator Tom Berryhill, State Assemblyman Devon Mathis, the City of Bishop, and the Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce.
"Small business is a critical part of California's economy," said Member Runner. "Our goal is to help business owners be successful by ensuring they understand California’s complicated tax laws."
Those looking for assistance with state and federal tax laws, as well as those who want to expand their business knowledge, will benefit from presentations given by representatives from the BOE, Employment Development Department, Franchise Tax Board, and Internal Revenue Service. Seminar topics include avoiding sales and use tax problems, determining if someone is an employee or independent contractor, recordkeeping, and forms of ownership.
