The Business Education Outreach Program was developed in 2015 along with the New and Small Business Education Center to help businesses receive taxpayer education and advice earlier in the business formation process. The program offers free tax presentations to a variety of Hoosier organizations. These in-person presentations discuss important tax information for tax practitioners, new and small businesses, specialty businesses, volunteer tax preparers and others, and allow attendees the opportunity to have questions answered by an experienced DOR representative. Upcoming Business Outreach Events can be found on our Events page.
