Starting a Small Business Seminar Hosted by NCDOR

Date: October 24, 2011

Mark your calendar for the North Carolina Department of Revenue's small business seminar—Tax Implications of Starting a Business.  The event will be held November 7, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Greensboro Service Center located at 5 Centerview Drive, Suite 100.

"Small businesses are critical to creating jobs in North Carolina and that's my top priority," Gov. Bev Perdue said. "This seminar is a way for state government to help new businesses get started by explaining the North Carolina tax laws that affect businesses in our state. Participants will leave the seminar knowing the tax laws that govern a business and the responsibilities of a business owner. Events like this help us make government more user-friendly and easy to understand."

Information will also be available about the Small Business Taxpayer Recovery Program—an initiative that is already helping hundreds of small business owners in North Carolina who have fallen behind on sales, withholding and other trust taxes—by offering penalty and fee waivers, as well as longer-term repayment plans.

"We know these programs will help our small businesses," said Secretary David Hoyle.  “They are critical to North Carolina's success as we move forward." Seating for the seminar is limited; contact Jonetta Appling at 336.315.7001 to reserve a spot.  Directions to the event can be found at
