February always brings to mind hearts, flowers, love and passion. Business owners usually start a business when they are passionate about what they are doing.For example, you love baking, so you open a bakery. You love working with your hands, laying tile or installing cabinets, so you become a contractor. You want to support your family, you enjoy nice things, and you have an idea about how to make money, so you open a business. Whatever the reason, every business owner has a story about why they hung out their shingle.

The most important thing that everyone needs to know is that there is a tax amnesty program currently in effect with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. That means from May 1 through June 29, 2018, the Comptroller is waiving penalties and interest for businesses who:
- Did not file a required return or report originally due before January 1, 2018
- Made an error on a previously filed report that resulted in an underpayment of taxes or additional tax due
- Or that don’t have a permit or proper registration for collecting and remitting Texas tax.
