Running a successful new or small business is both a dream for many people and a challenge for all. Oftentimes, understanding taxes can be one of the biggest challenges for new and small business owners.
When new and small Hoosier businesses have difficulty with taxes, it is due to not understanding Indiana regulations regarding filing and paying taxes.
The New and Small Business Education Center is designed to help business owners better understand state laws, the tax-filing process, and what services are available to help you as your business grows.
Whether you are a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, nonprofit, or you’re not sure, the Indiana Department of Revenue’s New and Small Business Education Center can help your business get started on the right path.
