     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana University will hold a free seminar on tax planning May 22 in Ponchatoula.
     Co-sponsored with the Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce, First Baptist Church of Ponchatoula, Ponchatoula Therapy, and First Guaranty Bank, the free seminar titled “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – Individuals and Businesses” will take place from 7:30 to 9 a.m., in the adult classroom of First Baptist Church of Ponchatoula, located at 325 E. Pine St.
     “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 unleashes the most significant altercations to the tax code in 30 years,” said Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Small Business Development Center. “This historic and sweeping reform legislation is poised to dramatically impact nearly every taxpayer across the financial spectrum – from individuals and families to corporations, pass-through entities and estates. Our local expert will help us navigate these changes through detailed comparisons of pre and post legislation tax filings.”
     Certified Public Accountant Phil Hebert is the scheduled guest speaker.
     Although there is no cost to attend, seating is only guaranteed for pre-registered attendees. To register or for more information, call (985) 549-3831 or email
