Convenience Stores and Indiana Taxes Webinar Now Available

September 21, 2016

Have you been meaning to attend a Business Education Outreach Program event but haven’t found the time? If so, you’re in luck! 

Hoosier business owners know firsthand that operating a business takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and time. In fact, most of us wish we could add another hour or two to the day in order to complete our to-do lists, but that’s simply not possible.

To meet the needs of busy Indiana business owners, the Indiana Department of Revenue has begun transitioning Business Education Outreach Program presentations to a webinar format. These webinar presentations allow you to access in-demand tax resources at a time and place convenient for you. Don’t worry if you prefer to attend an in-person presentation – those are still available!

One of the department’s most popular presentations, Convenience Stores and Indiana Taxes, is the first presentation to be transitioned to webinar format. The webinar-version is available here. Also available is the newly updated Indiana Tax Handbook for Convenience Store and Gas Station Operators.

The handbook and webinar include information related to the many different tax types convenience store and gas station operators may be required to handle.
