State officials have launched a program to help entrepreneurs and small-business owners understand N.C. tax issues and start their companies on the right foot, Gov. Mike Easley announced today.
The program, a joint effort of the N.C. Department of Revenue and the N.C. Community College System, begins this month with a series of free seminars. Instructors at the seminars will discuss tax laws and the requirements businesses must meet.

Seminar topics include tax implications for starting and growing a business and the basics of sales and use tax. Charlotte's Central Piedmont Community College will host a seminar in October.
The state community college system also launched a Web site, www.sbcn.nc.gov, with a section dedicated to tax information and other resources for small-business owners.
