Washington, D.C.—With the tax season just around the corner, January is the time of year when individuals begin organizing financial records in preparation for Uncle Sam. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs and small business owners don’t have a comprehensive understanding on tax requirements, which can negatively affect their businesses. Recognizing this need in the business community, the Washington, DC Economic Partnership will host a Business Premier event to help entrepreneurs and small business owners improve their tax preparation skills. The event will feature local financial experts discussing the benefits of successful tax preparation to a business’ bottom line and the many financial reporting tools available to all businesses.
