  1. Though in the past the IRS has not been a favorite for businesses, I have to say I am very please with the tools that have been provided. Especially the online learning and educational products such as the video and audio presentations.

    Great Job

  2. This is excellent. I have NO idea what the IRS is doing on a weekly basis and I don’t think my accountant has any vested interest in keeping me informed. I keep getting the feeling that I’m missing special government opportunities for tax breaks, even in this time, because I’m pretty much getting none.

  3. When Performance Food Group opted to build an operations center in South Carolina rather than its home state of Virginia, then-chairman Bob Sledd said the decision killed him.

    Better incentives, work force training and other services wooed the food distribution company to take the planned facility and jobs to South Carolina because it offered things Virginia “just wasn’t able to touch,” Sledd said.

    “I hated for our guys to make that decision, but how I can argue with them?,” Virginia’s newly appointed secretary of commerce and trade said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

    “Those are the things I don’t want to see happen. I want to see those jobs stay here.”

    When Sledd, 57, takes office on Jan. 16, he will oversee commerce in a state experiencing an unemployment rate hovering around 6.5 percent, well below the U.S. average of 9.5 percent. Yet some areas of Virginia, mostly in the Southwest, face unemployment levels nearing 20 percent.

    “We’re struggling a bit like every other state. There are a lot of rural areas in Virginia that are really hurting,” said Sledd, a former chief executive of Performance Food Group, a food distribution company with revenues totaling more than $9 billion. He is currently a managing partner of Pinnacle Ventures LLC, a venture capital firm, and serves as a director for three public companies.

    While Virginia’s location, work environment and tax laws make it very business-friendly, Sledd said more must be done to bring jobs to the state. Sledd, not being fully indoctrinated into the new post, said he is unable to provide specifics, but believes some legislative tweaking may be needed.

    The challenge, he said, is putting more money into economic development and helping small businesses succeed.

    Sledd said the Governor’s Opportunity Fund, which supports industrial development projects that create new jobs and investment in Virginia, is “woefully underfunded” compared to states that also are competing for business.

  4. Thanks for the info. I’m finding that Turbo Tax for small businesses, Quicken, and reminders in my MS Outlook calendar are not enough to keep up with the changes and challenges that small businesses such as mine have to face.

  6. Will do. Would’ve saved me a lot of headache had I known this IRS e-news.
