Small business workshops are designed to help the small business owner understand and fulfill their Federal Tax responsibilities. Workshops are sponsored and presented by IRS partners who are Federal Tax specialists. Workshop topics vary from a general overview of taxes to more specific topics such as recordkeeping and retirement plans. Although most are free, some workshops have fees associated with them. Any fees charged for a workshop are paid to the sponsoring organization, not the IRS. Small business phone forums enable the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to address issues involving small businesses without having to leave your home or office. The programs are designed to provide presentations on key topics. The phone forums are free of charge. These forums can be held either at the local or national level.
