Las Cruces’ Women’s Economic Self-sufficiency Team (WESST) will host a presentation to help small-business owners understand the state’s gross-receipts tax.
The presentation will start at 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 3, in the Roadrunner Room on the second floor of Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, 200 E. Picacho.Mary Anne Quesada, with the Small Business Development Center, will give the presentation.
“The gross receipts tax rate varies throughout the state from 5.125% to 8.6875% depending on the location of the business,” said a WESST press release announcing the presentation. “It varies because the total rate combines rates imposed by the state, counties, and if applicable, municipalities where the businesses are located. If this has you confused, or you don’t know what to do on your upcoming taxes, you do not want to miss our (March 3 meeting).”
