Current business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs who would like to learn how to comply with California's often complex tax laws are invited to attend a free Small Business Tax Seminar and Resource Expo in Ontario on Thursday, June 29.

California State Board of Equalization (BOE) Vice Chair George Runner is sponsoring the event with State Sen. Connie M. Leyva, Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez, San Bernardino County Supervisor Curt Hagman, San Bernardino County Assessor-Recorder Bob Dutton, the City of Ontario, and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

"Small businesses are a critical part of California's economy," said Runner. "Our goal is to help business owners be successful by ensuring they understand California's complicated tax laws."

Those looking for assistance with state and federal tax issues, as well as those who want to expand their business knowledge, will benefit from informative presentations. Topics include avoiding common sales and use tax problems, employee versus independent contractor, forms of ownership, and record keeping.

Representatives from the BOE, Employment Development Department, Franchise Tax Board, and Internal Revenue Service will conduct presentations and answer questions.

The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Ontario Convention Center, 2000 East Convention Center Way.
