The workshop will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 9, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Lakewood Library, 6300 Wildaire Rd. SW, Lakewood.

Revenue staff members will explain the state’s excise taxes and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about how taxes specifically apply to their businesses.

Tax reporting classifications, deductions and sales tax collection and record-keeping requirements will also be discussed.
