Local Tax Preparers Get Ready for Upcoming Season 

Dozens of local tax preparers are already getting readying for the new season.

They spent Thursday in Brewer at a workshop hosted by Bangor SCORE.

The group’s designed to help small businesses.

The seminar focused on changes in the tax law, ethics and issues that carry some pretty big tax implications.

Attorney Sean Norton says, “This year we’re talking about the tax consequences of Obamacare. And we’re talking about foreclosure taxation because a lot of people in Maine are struggling with foreclosure. And about a year or two after you go through foreclosure, many people actually have to pay taxes related to that.”

Bangor SCORE offers other workshops and mentoring for small business owners.
