Business tax workshop offered April 23 at GCCC


The Kansas Small Business Development Center at Garden City Community College and the Kansas Department of Revenue are hosting two tax workshops in Garden City for specific small-business owners.

A workshop for the irrigation industry will be conducted from 1 to 4 p.m. on April 23, followed by a session for contractors from 6 to 8 p.m. Both will take place in Room 2023 on the top floor of the GCCC Student and Community Services Center. Advance registration is required and a $10 registration fee will be charged and will allow for attendance at one or both sessions.

Each workshop will be presented by specialists from the Kansas Department of Revenue and will cover current state tax laws, including the Kansas Sales Tax and Compensating Use Tax, Withholding Tax and other related Kansas tax issues. A representative from the Kansas Department of Labor will present an overview of the Kansas unemployment tax requirements and filing process and clarify the difference in the classification of a worker as an employee or an independent contractor.
