Small Business Seminars Continue

Date: February 22, 2012

The North Carolina Department of Revenue will continue a series of seminars focused on helping citizens understand more about launching and operating a small business.  The series began last fall with sessions in Greensboro, Charlotte and Raleigh in an effort to support small business and keep jobs in North Carolina.

The next session will be held on March 14, from 10 am to noon, at the NCDOR service center at 4701 Atlantic Avenue. 

 "These seminars are a way for state government to help new businesses get started by explaining the North Carolina tax laws that affect businesses in our state," said Gov. Perdue. "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."

Attendees take part in table-top exercises to learn about everything from registering a business, to filling out and sending in a tax return. 

Participants also get information about the Small Business Taxpayer Recovery Program—an initiative that is already helping more than 1,500 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 help our small businesses become successful as we move forward in this recovery period," said Revenue Secretary David Hoyle.  "We've heard anecdotes that our programs focused on small business have saved some from closing their doors."

Seating for the next seminar is limited; email to reserve a spot.

More seminar dates may be announced in the coming months.
