COVID-19 & Small Business: Weekly Virtual Town Hall

COVID-19 & Small Business: Weekly Virtual Town Hall

June 11, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Online Training


Congress created multiple tax credits to assist small business owners during the COVID-19 pandemic. Find out how you can request an advance of these credits, rather than waiting until you submit next year’s tax return.

Neki Cox from the Internal Revenue Service will discuss:

  • Sick and Qualified Family Leave Wages Credit;
  • The Employee Retention Credit; and
  • How to Receive Advanced Money on These Credits

We will also have a brief update on other resources and assistance available to small business owners in Wyoming from CPA Sarah Sweeney and Wyoming SBDC Network State Director Jill Kline.

A Q&A session will follow.

No Cost
