Incubator Hosting Workshop

Taxes for small business will be the focus of the next presentation in the Entrepreneurial Workshop Series at the Fredonia Technology Incubator, 214 Central Ave., Dunkirk, Thursday, Feb. 23, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

Kathleen Richardson, an outreach specialist at the state Department of Taxation and Finance, will teach participants how to file tax obligations for a small business, what to do if they plan to hire employees and how to manage income taxes for the self-employed. Business practices and tips will also be offered.

”Small businesses are the backbone of New York state’s economy, accounting for 98 percent of all businesses in the state,” Richardson said. ”We want business owners to be able to focus on building their companies and not be overwhelmed with tax filing obligations. This workshop will help simplify the filing process and allow business owners to better understand their responsibilities and the resources available so they can thrive here in Western New York.”

The workshop is free and open to the public, though seating is limited. For more information or to register for Taxes for Small Businesses, contact the Fredonia Technology Incubator at 680-6009 or or visit
