SEMINAR: Conquer Business Taxes with Ease

About Your Seminar

How do you know your business is ready for filing your tax return? Is there a difference in filing a business tax return from filing your individual taxes? What material will your tax professional need? Do you have questions about where to even begin?

These are just a few of the questions most commonly asked by new business owners. In this hands on workshop, Connie Vanderzanden is going to give you the steps and the checklist to make sure you have all your accounting activity collected and organized to make your tax filing experience as painless as possible. Plus she will provide a few steps that you can use to get 2019 headed in the right direction.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this workshop:

  • What paperwork do you need to keep, for how long, and suggested practices
  • Match your tax entity to the tax forms needed, that way you’ll know what the tax filing deadline is
  • Basics of setting up a system to stay organized for 2019

After the workshop you will have a checklist and steps to follow to organize your own business accounting activity and be ready to file your taxes. Although we will be covering many bases in this workshop, we leave tax advice to the professionals. Consult with your CPA or LTC for information on any tax law that is unique to you.
