Get Answers at Our Small Business Tax Workshop,” on Thursday, June 30, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Campus' Humanities Building 2 nd floor lounge. The event is geared toward aspiring and established small business owners.

Sponsored by the Campus' School of Business, Public Administration and Information Sciences and the Center for Accounting and Tax Education (CATE), the workshop will focus on the fundamentals of federal taxes for small business owners.

“This free seminar is a special opportunity for small business owners to get answers to their questions on recordkeeping and tax return preparations,” said Myrna Fischman, director of CATE, and chair of the accounting, taxation and law department at the Brooklyn Campus.
