Business Owners – Be ADOR’s B.E.S.T.
Attend Montgomery-area State Tax Seminar on April 11
MONTGOMERY, March 28, 2017 – State tax obligations can sometimes confuse business owners.
Licenses, sales tax, property tax, etc. – business owners are responsible for many details. To make that
task easier, the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) invites business owners to come learn the
“B.E.S.T.” ways to handle state taxes at ADOR’s free Business Essentials for State Taxpayers Seminar
on Tuesday, April 11, at 11 a.m. in Montgomery.
The seminar will be held at the Montgomery Taxpayer Service Center, 2545 Taylor Road.
ADOR specialists conduct B.E.S.T. Seminars, which include a brief but comprehensive overview of
Alabama’s business taxes, the business owner’s tax obligations, and the forms that are required, as well
as information on electronic filing and other requirements. Presenters cover a variety of state tax
information topics, including employer withholding taxes, state and local sales taxes, property taxes, and
business licensing requirements. The B.E.S.T. Seminars help new business owners navigate through
unfamiliar tax complexities while updating current business owners on tax law changes.
Seminar attendees receive ADOR’s “Starting a New Business” guide and information about Alabama’s
ONE SPOT, a free Internet filing and payment portal that allows business taxpayers to file and pay state,
county, and city sales, use, and rental taxes all in one place!
While there is no charge to attend the B.E.S.T. Seminars, reservations are required to ensure adequate
space is available. To make your reservation for the Montgomery B.E.S.T. Seminar, contact Amanda
Turner at 334-242-2677.
For more information on B.E.S.T. Seminars and other B.E.S.T. resources, visit our website at
