GADSDEN, Jan. 16, 2020 – State tax obligations for business owners – licenses, sales tax, property tax, withholding, etc. – are a lot to be responsible for. To help Alabama business owners better understand and master these requirements, the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) invites business owners to ADOR’s free Business Essentials for State Taxpayers (B.E.S.T.) Seminar on Thursday, Jan. 30, at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. in Gadsden.
The seminar will be held at the Gadsden Taxpayer Service Center, 701 Forrest Ave.
B.E.S.T. Seminars help new business owners navigate through unfamiliar tax complexities while updating current business owners on tax law changes. Conducted by ADOR specialists, B.E.S.T. Seminars offer a brief but comprehensive overview of Alabama’s business taxes, the business owner’s tax obligations, the necessary forms, and other requirements. Seminar attendees also receive information on electronic filing and Alabama’s ONE SPOT (https://revenue.alabama.gov/sales-use/one-spot/), a free Internet portal that allows business taxpayers to file and pay state, county, and city sales, use, and rental taxes all in one place!
While there is no charge to attend the B.E.S.T. Seminars, reservations are required to ensure adequate space is available. Reserve your spot online for either the 10 a.m. session or the 2 p.m. session. Each attendee must register individually, even if they are from the same company. Once you’ve registered online, you will receive an email confirmation. If you have any questions, please call Isabel Tongsuvone at 256-459-3082.
