This workshop is a MUST for any entrepreneur who envisions starting a business and highly recommended for current business owners who want a refresher on taxes. Every business owner has tax reporting and payment responsibilities that start before the doors are opened to customers and continues past the sale of the business or end of operations. This workshop explains the most common types of taxes, how the form of business affects how income is distributed and reported, and what constitutes income and expenses (what and how much you can “write off”). It also covers recordkeeping requirements, when and how a business reports and pays its taxes, penalties for not doing it right or on time, and where you can get help when you need it.

Did you know?

• Women own 38% (11.3 million) of all businesses in the U.S.

• Women start businesses with 50% less capital than their male counterparts

• Women-owned businesses generate $1.6 trillion in revenues and employ 8% of the private sector

Although women-owned businesses are growing at a rate of 5 times the national average, women receive only 4.4% of total small business loan dollars. The time to invest in women is now. The Women's Business Development Center invites you to an exclusive Access to Capital Breakfast at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. Meet a panel of experts as they share ways they support women entrepreneurs’ access capital. Hear from a woman entrepreneur on how her capital needs evolved during each phase of her business. The event is open to business owners, bankers, and community partners.

Registration: Space is limited. Please RSVP by May 19, 2017. Check-in: You must bring a valid government issued photo ID to enter the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
