Making an Impact Providing Small Businesses with Taxpayer Relief
By Nathan Miller
More than 150 new and continuing small business owners attended Thursday’s Small Business Seminar sponsored by Member Harkey and hosted by our partners at the City of Corona and the Corona Chamber of Commerce.
Attendees experienced the unique opportunity to hear from a host of small business and taxpayer advocacy experts. Each represented their knowledge of the challenges and choices small business owners have when starting and maintaining their individual economic enterprises including Todd Gilman – CA State Board of Equalization appointed Taxpayer’s Rights Advocate, and special programs specializing in Sales and Use Tax Basics, Forms of Ownership, Proper Employee Classification, Record Keeping Best Practices, the role of the SBA and additional programs and services.
Thank you to our co-sponsors Senator Richard Roth, Assemblyman Eric Linder, Riverside County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder Peter Aldana, Corona Mayor Eugene Montanez and Vice-Mayor Jason Scott as well as the City of Corona for their fantastic hospitality. Everyone was additionally grateful to the Corona Chamber of Commerce and President Bobby Spiegel for providing the well-received coffee, donuts and breakfast burritos.
The State of California, the County of Riverside and Cities like Corona rely on the success of our small business community. The last thing we need is to have them experience hurdles because they were never educated about simple facts that not only help them stay in business, but give them the tools they need for their businesses to thrive.
These outstanding seminars are an excellent opportunity for business owners to strengthen their knowledge about California tax laws and give everyone the opportunity to keep their businesses going and growing. For future events near you, please visit Diane Harkey’s events page to register.
