Texas Comptroller’s free seminar answers business owners’ questions about state taxes

A diverse economy, growing work force and friendly business climate attract more businesses to the Lone Star state every day. Texas Comptroller Susan Combs’ office regularly presents free taxpayer seminars throughout the state to help new and existing business owners understand their state tax responsibilities.

The next seminar in the Fort Worth area is from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, at the Comptroller’s Fort Worth Field Office, located at 4040 Fossil Creek Blvd., Suite 100.

At the seminar, taxpayers can learn about sales tax forms, filing and paying taxes electronically, taxable goods and services, e-services to help taxpayers manage their accounts online, the Comptroller’s e-mail subscription service that alerts taxpayers when new tax information is posted online, and the array of other services and information available from the Comptroller’s office to assist taxpayers. Comptroller representatives will answer questions and provide assistance to attendees.

“A strong and diverse business community is the key to Texas’ economic strength,” Combs said. “We are committed to assisting Texas businesses by making taxes simpler, smarter, faster and, above all, transparent. We owe it to our taxpayers to provide the best customer service possible.”

For more information about the seminar, call the Comptroller’s Fort Worth Field Office at (817) 847-6201.

Those who are unable to attend the seminar can call the Comptroller’s toll-free tax assistance line at (800) 252-5555. Tax forms and tax information can also be found on the Comptroller’s Web site, www.window.state.tx.us.
