If your case of "winter blues" is brought on by the arrival of tax season, we have the cure for you! Join us for our annual business income tax overview and learn (or re-learn) the essentials of filing your business's income taxes. Focusing on sole proprietorships and partnerships (this includes LLCs), we'll talk about types of income and expenses, what documentation and information you'll need to organize, and how to put it all together on the appropriate IRS forms. Whether you're filing a business return for the first time or would just like a refresher, you'll leave armed with the confidence that taxes don't have to be painful! This seminar is designed for businesses that are already in operation and will be filing a 2013 tax income return. The seminar will not cover sales tax.

Hillary Albrecht, Smart Start Preschool

When I decided to open a new preschool in Trumansburg, the Business CENTS program at Alternatives was suggested by many. With the outstanding support and guidance from the Business CENTS staff, I was able to write my first business plan and secure a business loan. My preschool is now open for business, and I am confident I will be off to a successful start! The Business CENTS program has been invaluable, and I would recommend their services and banking to all. Thank you Alternatives!
