During challenging economic times, business owners and individual taxpayers alike must be aware of the bottom line. The Charleston Area Alliance and Dixon Hughes Goodman have teamed together to bring you expert analysis and insight on critical issues that impact the region’s businesses.
“Reduce Your State & Local Tax Burden,” the next session of a new professional development initiative called SUCCESStrategies, is scheduled from noon to 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8 at the Alliance offices, 1116 Smith Street.
Registration is $15 for Alliance members and $25 for future members and increases to $25 and $35 starting June 6. Register here.
The program will feature prominent tax professionals who will share tips about tax strategies, tax credits, filing and avoiding penalties at the state level. The roundtable will be moderated by Rick Slater, Managing Partner at Dixon Hughes Goodman. Speakers include:
- Craig Griffith, West Virginia Tax Commissioner
- Bob Kiss, Partner with Bowles Rice McDavid Graff & Love, and
- Lydia McKee, Senior Manager with Dixon Hughes Goodman
“This major education initiative is a great benefit to local businesses –both small and large. It is critically important that we keep current in this ever changing environment,” says Rick Slater, Regional Managing Partner at Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP.
SUCCESStrategies is raising the bar for professional development programming in the Charleston region as evidenced by the first program, which focused on health care reform and what it means to West Virginia employers. This new series showcases high level speakers addressing issues of real substance to business leaders in the area and will be held at the Alliance office every other month through the end of 2011.
