Small Business and Technology Development Center to host business sales and tax workshop

May 17, 2010 -- Arkansas State University Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC) and Arkansas Tax Associates, Inc. are hosting a small business workshop, Tuesday, May 18, entitled “Arkansas Sales and Use Tax for Small Businesses” for area business owners. The workshop is from 1-4 p.m. in Room 110 of the ASU Delta Center for Economic Development building, 319 University Loop West, on the ASU campus.

This three-hour workshop is designed to inform business owners of current sales tax laws, help them prevent overpayment of sales tax, educate them about the increased risk of audits that they face due to increased compliance audits and show them how to protect themselves from failure to comply with new regulations.  The seminar also covers state of Arkansas Incentives and Tax Credits that are available to many eligible businesses.  The Instructors are David Rickman, Jeff Simmons and Ted Walker of Arkansas Tax Associates, Inc.

 “Arkansas Tax Associates, Inc. are long time partners with the ASU SBTDC,” said Herb Lawrence, ASU Small Business and Technology Development Center Director,  “They provide a unique service not provided by many accounting firms by helping small businesses understand Arkansas Sales and Use Tax requirements and making sure that they are in compliance.

“Arkansas Sales and Use Tax laws become more complicated every year and this seminar is designed to keep Craighead County businesses informed about changes, how to deal with audits, even find out if they have been overpaying.”

Registration is $35 per person ($25 for Chamber and Downtown Jonesboro Association (DJA) members and $20 for ASU faculty, staff and students).   For more information or to register, contact the Arkansas State University Small Business and Technology Development Center at (870) 972-3517, e-mail, register online at or register on the ASU SBTDC Facebook  site at
