FREE WORKSHOPS AND SOFTWARE HELP ENTREPRENEURS SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH
CALIFORNIA SALES TAX REPORTING
ORANGE, Calif. - May 6, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Business tax trainer Sandra
Lynch announces free training workshops that teach small business owners how to
quickly and accurately prepare their own sales tax returns, error-free. This new
