A sales tax seminar is being offered for local small businesses.

State Representative Hank Vaupel of Handy Township will be joined by the Brighton, Hartland and Howell Area Chambers of Commerce to host a sales tax seminar for small businesses on Tuesday, September 26th. Vaupel says he consistently hears from Livingston County small business owners about how burdensome the sales tax filing process can be, thus the event will be a great opportunity for small businesses to receive individual assistance.

The Michigan Department of Treasury’s Outreach Team will provide an overview of the sales tax filing process and how to appeal an audit decision. The team also will answer questions and listen to suggestions from attendees.

The seminar will take place from 7 to 9pm at the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce building on East Washington Street. No registration is required to attend. Residents who have questions are encouraged to contact Vaupel’s Lansing office at (517) 373-8835 or by email at HankVaupel@house.mi.gov. (JM)
