The Alabama Department of Revenue will be hosting a free tax seminar for business owners on July 26 in Montgomery, according to a release from the agency.

The seminar will be held at the Montgomery Taxpayer Service Center, located at 2545 Taylor Rd., beginning at 11 a.m.

The seminar “Business Essentials for State Taxpayers” will cover state tax obligations for business owners, including licenses, sales tax, property tax and withholding.

“B.E.S.T. seminars help new business owners navigate through unfamiliar tax complexities, while updating current business owners on tax law changes,” according to ADOR’s release.

“Conducted by ADOR specialists, B.E.S.T. seminars offer a brief but comprehensive overview of Alabama’s business taxes, the business owner’s tax obligations, the necessary forms, and other requirements. Seminar attendees also receive information on electronic filing and Alabama’s ONE SPOT (revenue.alabama.gov/sales-use/one-spot/), a free internet portal that allows business taxpayers to file and pay state, county, and city sales, use and rental taxes all in one place.”

Anyone wishing to attend the seminar is asked to make a reservation at revenue.alabama.gov/event/montgomery-b-e-s-t-seminar-072618-11a/.

Attendees must register for the event individually.

“B.E.S.T. seminars are two hours long plus additional time for questions and answers,” according to the release. “Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled seminar.”
