Cowley First-Cowley County Economic Development will be hosting two free business and contractor’s tax workshops on August 4th. The guest speaker will address topics benefiting local businesses, large and small.
Carl York, Kansas Department of Revenue Tax Specialist- as part of the Taxpayer Education Unit, will present on two topics regarding business taxes. On Thursday, August 4 from 10:00 a.m. to noon, Carl will address sales tax issues for contractors. This workshop is devoted exclusively to sales tax issues for contractors and subcontractors (i.e., those who provide plumbing, carpentry, electrical, roofing, heating/air conditioning, landscaping, etc.). Topics will include how sales tax applies to materials and labor, the use of Project Exemption Certificates, and explain the process of filing sales tax returns and billing.
Carl will present a second session from 1:00 p.m.to 5:00 p.m. on retail sales taxes. This workshop explains the differences between Kansas retailers’ sales tax, Kansas retailers’ compensating use tax, and Kansas consumers’ compensating use tax. You will gain a basic understanding of the goods and services subject to sales tax and applicable exemptions. Carl will help you determine if you are liable for sales tax on the goods and services you sell, and what forms you need to file. This workshop is geared towards businesses and hobbyists that sell a product or service.
Workshops will be held at Cowley First offices in the Strother Field Airport Terminal Building, 22193 Tupper St. To register for a free workshop or for more information call Cowley First at (620) 442-3094 or (620) 221-9951 or email email@example.com.
