Information Officer Lance Christensen led the group of business owners through a Sales & Use Tax primer.
Every seat was filled at the City of Murrieta’s future for tech startups – The Murrieta Innovation Center. State Board of Equalization Information Officer Lance Christensen was there on Tuesday to present a Basic Sales & Use Tax Workshop and to instruct businesses how to file a digital Sales & Use Tax Return. Sponsored by District 4 Board Member Diane Harkey as well as Murrieta Mayor Randon Lane, Eastern Municipal Water Director Phil Paule, and the City of Murrieta, attendees were given instruction on such topics as Use Tax, District Tax, and Retail Certificates. Business owners were then able to put their newfound knowledge to use while receiving instruction on electronic filing. “I’m glad we can offer classes like this one to the Murrieta business community and hope we can offer more in the future” stated Mayor Lane.
Wildomar Sales & Use Tax Seminar for Nonprofits
Representatives from local nonprofits were eager to attend a specialized industry seminar.
Nonprofit representatives from the greater Wildomar area gathered at the Animal Friends of the Valleys Animal Shelter classroom to receive free Sales & Use Tax information from the State Board of Equalization. Sponsored by District 4 Board Member Diane Harkey as well as Wildomar Mayor Ben Benoit, Eastern Municipal Water Director Phil Paule, and the Wildomar Chamber of Commerce attendees were instructed on how to run fundraisers, raffles, pancake breakfasts, and the like. Although it was unclear if anyone left with a new puppy or kitten, they certainly adopted a lot of valuable information to run their nonprofits more effectively.
