From the city of Snellville:
What kinds of conversations happen at your local high school?
On. Jan 9, six junior and senior South Gwinnett High School student businesses owners sat around a table with tax advisor and Snellville Councilwoman Barbara Bender seeking to better understand how to protect their start-up businesses from unnecessary tax liabilities.
One student asked, “If my mom purchases the materials for my business, is that a loan, a gift, or an expenditure to my business?” Another student asked about the need to collect sales tax for online purchases.
The students around the table were second-year students participating in The Entrepreneurship Academy at SGHS. The academy is focused on encouraging and challenges students to create their own summer job using knowledge they get from the city-school partnership program.
