As a small business owner, you may be thinking about taxes with a significant level of uncertainty, especially with new tax laws in effect. "Where do I even start?!", "What does the IRS need from me this year?", "Will my business taxes be easier?" and "How can I be better prepared next year?" are common questions. Don't fret! This workshop is a realistic starting point for small businesses wanting to strengthen their understanding over their business taxes.

Depending on the pace of the workshop, end time may vary.

Presenter: TBD
