Important Tax Changes for Small Businesses in 2018

Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce – Conference Room
403 N. E. Jefferson
Peoria, IL, 61603

With major tax changes passed by Congress in 2017, many taxpayers are wondering what it means for 2018. As a business owner, you must not only prepare your business – and personal – tax returns, but you must also take care of year-end payroll tax reports for employees and non-employees (freelancers and contract workers).

Take this opportunity to get an overview of the changes and their impact from David Mills, CPA.

This workshop is FREE, but registration is required.
