Small business owners are always interested in finding ways to maximize the tools available when it comes to overhead and paying the bills.
An opportunity to do just that is presenting itself in Almont, when the Almont Area Chamber of Commerce hosts Tom and Debbie Valentine at their next 'Wake Up With Almont' meeting at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 12. The meeting will be held at the Almont Lions Hall, 222 Water Street, Almont.
The Valentines are Level Three Assessors and Certified Personal Property Examiners with dozens of combined years' experience in Lapeer County. They'll discuss the basics of property taxes in Michigan and key points taxpayers need to know to minimize their tax obligations. Their presentation will inform taxpayers just in time for the February 10, 2017 Michigan Personal Property Tax Statement deadline.
Visitors will also learn how to avoid common errors and the importance of reviewing assessment notices, property classifications and taxable values. And you'll learn common methods individuals and businesses can use to have their Michigan property tax assessment lowered and credits available under the Michigan Business Tax Act. You'll get all that and more for a donation of just $5, which includes continental breakfast as well.
