Saint Vincent College Small Business Development Center will host a seminar entitled, Record Keeping and Tax Requirements for Small Business, on Thursday, March 15. The seminar will be held at Saint Vincent College from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Many small business owners begin their businesses not knowing the types of taxes for which they are responsible. By the time they find out, some of them owe back-taxes, penalties, and interest that result in closing their business or even worse, having to declare bankruptcy. Good record keeping can help a business owner by providing reliable information so that the minimum tax is paid on time. This presentation will help participants learn how to avoid tax problems, and provide a model for maintaining good record keeping techniques. Topics include business tax deductions, taxpayer services, taxpayer ID numbers, employee withholding, payroll tax requirements and withholding, sales tax responsibility, record keeping systems, accounting methods, as well as keeping business records.

Presenter Becky Rock earned her accounting degree at Saint Vincent College. She has worked for the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, Bureau of Audits for 18 years and is currently a supervisor and CPA.

The fee to attend this seminar is $40 or $35 each person for two or more attendees. Included with the registration fee is a one-year subscription (12 issues) to Inc. magazine, valued at $10. The Saint Vincent College Small Business Development Center is part of a statewide system of university-based economic development organizations, whose mission is to provide high quality education and consulting to entrepreneurs, to help them start and grow their businesses in the competitive global economy. Early registration is recommended, as space is limited. To register or to obtain additional information, contact the Saint Vincent College SBDC at 724 537-4572.
