Sojourner’s Truth Staff

Women Entrepreneurs with a Purpose, an organization founded in March 2019 in order to help women business owners succeed, held a tax class on Saturday, January 11 to help its members with both their personal and business taxes. Darlene Knapp, CPA, of Knapp Accounting was the guest lecturer.

Knapp has over 21 years of public accounting experience in the tax compliance, planning and closely held business areas. She graduated from the University of Toledo with a degree in Business Administration and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, among other professional organizations.

Knapp took the attendees through the planning and opening of a small business from the accounting standpoint, emphasizing the importance of having the skills necessary to operate successfully to compiling the information needed to make the correct decisions about the operation, particularly on the accounting/tax end.

Knapp brought along checklists as examples of how a new or prospective business owner can begin the process of stating an enterprise – how to obtain the proper documentation and forms, how to select a mode of operating, how to make decisions that will properly comply with local and national business oversight agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service.
