State welcomes Tacoma, Federal Way business owners to free taxation workshops

It’s about the taxes you owe if you own a business, and if you own a business, you need to know what taxes you are required to report.

To help business owners — especially owners of new businesses — the Washington State Department of Revenue will host free workshops in Tacoma and Federal Way on Wednesday.

Participants will learn about Washington excise taxes, reporting classifications, deductions, tax incentives, sales tax collection and record-keeping requirements. Attendees will receive a workbook and reference guide to the department’s rules and regulations.

The Tacoma workshop will be held from 1-4 p.m. at the Department of Revenue, 3315 S. 23rd St.

The Federal Way workshop will be held at the same time at the Federal Way Library, 34200 1st Way. S.
