The Hawaii State Department of Taxation is holding a series of workshops in August to educate the public on online tax filing and to review recent 2011 Legislative tax law changes.

Tax professionals and the public at large are encouraged to attend the workshops which will be held on Oahu, Maui, Kaua’i and Hawai’i Island from Aug. 11 to Aug. 23.

“These workshops promote our desire to partner with our community’s tax professionals to educate and increase awareness of new tax law changes, said Director of Taxation Fred Pablo, in a written statement released yesterday. “We want to ensure that the tax laws applied consistently, uniformly, and fairly for taxpayers.”

All workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. Registration begins at 8 a.m. This year’s topics will also include information on Director Pablo’s strategic plan, an update on efforts to provide more e-filing services, and a review of tax law changes adopted during the 2011 Legislative Session.


The cost for each workshop is $80 for those who register at least two weeks ahead; and $85 for those who register after that. The cost includes a continental breakfast and all workshop materials.


Attendees can also receive four hours of Continuing Professional Education credit. Workshop materials may also be purchased separately for $25 each.

Registration forms are available on the Department’s website.
