The free workshops, which are scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., will be held in the Continuing Education Center, Adams Hall room 206 on TROY's Dothan Campus.

Presented by the Office of Taxpayer Advocacy, the workshops will present information on a variety of state tax and business topics, including employer withholding taxes, state and local sales taxes, property taxes, business licensing requirements and Alabama's child labor law. In addition, an overview of Alabama's business tax electronic filing programs will be presented.

The Office of Taxpayer Advocacy has been established to provide an avenue of relief, to identify systemic problems, and to offer suggestions for improvement in procedures, according to the organization's website. It is a way to reinforce the Alabama Department of Revenue's commitment to equitable and fair treatment.
