State offers class in business taxes

If you've just started a business and have questions about state taxes – or if you've owned a small business and have questions – the state Department of Revenue wants to offer some answers.

The department’s Tacoma office will host a workshop for new and small-business owners on Sept. 16 from 1 p.m.-4 p.m.

The workshop – it’s free – will take place at the department office at 3315 S. 23rd St. in the second-floor conference room.

According to a news release, participants will learn about Washington excise taxes, reporting classifications, deductions, tax incentives, sales tax collection and record-keeping requirements. All receive a workbook and reference guide to Department of Revenue rules and regulations.
