FREDERIKSTED — The V.I. Small Business Development Center (VI SBDC) in collaboration with the UVI Cooperative Extension Service (CES) and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (IRB) will host workshops to assist farmers and small businesses with filing their taxes.

“These workshops will make you aware of some of the tax advantages given to farmers,” said Mary Joe Williams, SBDC network marketing coordinator. “The workshops will not make you an expert on filing your tax return; however, they will make you aware of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done. Come prepared to get your questions answered.”
