Question by Demetrious: What goverment programs are available to start a small business? I know taxes have gone up this pass year and
some businesses have closed. How can I get the most out of owning a business when filing my taxes?
Answer by Sharyl
To get help from the government, you have to know what kind of help you need. Are you opening a retail store or a construction business. Exactly what do you need? A building? Operating capital? Get a good idea of what you need, then you can find aid to get it. It would start with the Small Business Administration. They can help with business plans and loan applications. They can also provide insight and classes about different taxes you will be facing as an employer and business owner.
Grants are harder to obtain without a track record, but there are options available.
