Event Information: This seminar is a 1 ½ day course to train anyone with a tax or accounting background who would like to join our volunteer instructor cadre to present the joint Federal/State Basic Payroll Tax Seminars to small business owners and employers. This is a great way to give back to your small business community, improve your public speaking skills, and meet and assist small business owners and employers.

The IRS Stakeholder Liaison office and the Employment Development Departments Taxpayer Education and Assistance office collaborated to educate the small business self-employed taxpayers in the area of employment taxes by creating a one-stop approach to employment tax outreach. IRS and EDD developed a PowerPoint presentation and comprehensive practical example to aid in the understanding and application of federal and state payroll taxes. In the past five years, we have reached over 17,000 California businesses and independent contractors providing them payroll and tax instruction.

Currently, we need qualified and motivated presenters to help educate the public in the San Jose area (including Capitola) and North Bay Area (e.g. Santa Rosa and Sonoma). The IRS will provide technical training and resource materials to those presenters who wish to volunteer to be a part of our instructor cadre. No prior experience in employment taxes or payroll is required. There is no financial obligation. Your participation is based on your schedule and availability. The course is from 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on September 28 and 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on September 29. If you are interested and/or would like additional information, please contact Jennifer Henrie-Brown at 510-637-2199 or Space is limited so RSVP as soon as possible.
