Revenue offers free webinar about taxes for businesses

Business owners in Washington have many responsibilities, including knowing which taxes they must report. To help reach more businesses statewide, the Washington State Department of Revenue hosts a free live webinar for new and small business owners.

The webinar is from 10 to 11 a.m. March 12.

This is the first time Revenue has done a business outreach session online. Revenue plans to further leverage the Web to make it easier for businesses by hosting several of these sessions online this year.

"We've offered in-person workshops for a number of years, and offering online webinars will make it easier for small businesses to fit a workshop into their busy schedules," Revenue Director Carol K. Nelson said.

To register, visit www.dor.wa.gov/webinar and provide the following: name, company name, phone number and email address.

Space is limited, and the deadline to register is Feb. 28.

Participants will learn about Washington excise taxes, reporting classifications, deductions, sales tax collection and record-keeping requirements. The webinar facilitator will answer specific questions related to your business at the end of the webinar.

The Revenue website at www.dor.wa.gov/Workshops offers a complete schedule of in-person business workshops held around the state and short video versions of the workshops.
