The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 12, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Lakewood Library, 6300 Wildaire Road 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.

Participants will receive a workbook which answers the most common questions asked, as well as copies of department rules and regulations.

New business owners will also have the opportunity to volunteer for tax consultation visits to ensure they are reporting property.
