Lunch & Learn - COMPASS MD's Tax System Upgrade

 

Comptroller Franchot and the State of Maryland are investing $150 million dollars in a new, state of the art, integrated tax system.

 

Once fully implemented, COMPASS will change the way taxpayers interact with the Comptroller’s Office. 

 

COMPASS, Maryland's new tax system upgrade, will be more secure, more efficient and more user-friendly than ever before. 

 

Business owners who may pay several different types of taxes – sales tax and corporate income taxes for example, in addition to personal income tax – will be able to track all their accounts through the same system.

 

Bring a lunch and join us for this 90-minute session to learn:

 

  • how and when the new tax system upgrade will affect you and your business
  • about the new and improved fraud detection and prevention programs
  • how to manage accounts online
  • the maximized audit, collection, reporting and estimating functionality
 

A question and answer session will follow.

WEBINAR: Marketing & Media Network

 

 

In the midst of COVID chaos, we are all hyperaware of our businesses and performance.  We are all working even harder now, but our focus has changed.  Maybe our days are filled with filling out loan applications, staffing issues, finances and remote workforces – but one thing we have more of is TIME.  Time is the silver lining in the current crisis. 

We have more time to think about how habits and behaviors are changing, about how to target the most profitable areas of our businesses and optimize our customer base.  Time to create content, add a new service, work on continuing education, review policies and internal processes.  We have time to prepare to compete!

Join in on a conversation with a panel of four D3 marketing experts as they share "ID3AS" on how to market in the moment, retain customers and plan ahead for post COVID-19.
