Regulatory Roundtable

SPECIAL WORKSHOP WITH GUEST PRESENTERS
Regulatory Roundtable
It’s often better to be proactive rather than reactive in business. This is especially true when it comes to complying with rules around taxes and employment. Mistakes can be costly, time consuming and stressful. That’s why the Zions Bank® Business Resource Center is teaming up with guest presenters from three state agencies for a new workshop where you’ll gain access to experts and important information in a friendly, casual environment before a “situation” develops.
In this workshop you will:
• Learn from representatives from the Idaho State Tax Commission, the Idaho Industrial Commission, and the Idaho Department of Labor.
• Find out what you don’t know but need to know about:
o Sales Tax Permitting
o Income Tax Withholding, Idaho W-4 and other forms
o Workman’s Compensation and Unemployment Insurance
o Independent Contractor versus Employee status
o Wage Payment Law Compliance
• Get your questions answered and your confusion cleared up.

The workshop, “Regulatory Roundtable”, is offered for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal or other professional advice. Consult with an attorney or other professional concerning your own needs and circumstances. The views and opinions expressed by the speaker are not necessarily those of Zions Bank®, its parent or affiliates. Zions Bank is a division of Zions Bancorporation, N.A. Member FDIC.
