SCC’s Small Business Center announces upcoming free seminars


Over the next week, Southwestern Community College’s Small Business Center will offer two free seminars to help existing and aspiring entrepreneurs at the Jackson Campus.

The first of these, which is from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 29, is entitled “Business Taxes” and will show small business owners what is required when filing taxes, what dates are important and what records should be kept.

Participants will learn what triggers tax audits and steps to take that will help you prevent or survive an audit.

On Wednesday, March 2, a session on “Starting a Better Business” will be offered from 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m. This seminar covers how to assess your business ownership skills, the feasibility of your business idea and the parts of a business plan.

The goal is to give participants information they need to make better decisions.

Both of these seminars are taught in partnership with The Sequoyah Fund.

Seating is limited for all these workshops, and registration is required. Reserve your seat at
