University Communications



SEPT. 30, 2005--It's never too early to think about taxes. The Wipfli accounting firm, the Wisconsin Department of Commerce, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Small Business Development Center and the Wisconsin Angel Network are sponsoring a free workshop Oct. 6 from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. in the Alumni Room in South Hall.

Since January 2005, investors making equity investments in qualified early-stage stage businesses are eligible for a tax credit of 25% of the investment over two years. The workshop will cover which investors are eligible, what companies may be qualified new business ventures, what the tax-credit program limits are and what the steps are for investors from investing to claiming the credits.

Pam Christenson, director of the Bureau of Entrepreneurship at the Wisconsin Department of Commerce will the lead the workshop, give an overview of tax credits and answer questions. She was part of the team that developed and enacted rules and programs including the tax credits.

For registration and information, contact Steve DeWald at the UW-RF SBDC at or 715/425-0620.
