Small Business Tax Planning 

Just in time for April 15, the Chamber is bringing an accountant and banker together to help answer all of your questions about tax planning and compliance requirements for small businesses.

CPA Matt Cole will join US Bank Branch Manager Ashley Mangen to tackle this discussion and still give plenty of time to file your taxes. With the drastic changes to tax law, there is much you'll need to understand for filing your 2017 taxes and prepare yourself for 2018. 

The Chamber Chat is March 15 at 9:00 am at the Bryan Center on the 2nd floor in Rooms A&B. US Bank will be providing coffee and donuts for attendees. 

The meeting is open to members and non-members but we'd like you to register since we're providing refreshments. Click here to register.

And any non-member who attends the meeting and joins the YS Chamber within 7 days will receive a $10 or 15% discount  (which ever is greater) on their initial rate.
