Small business owners are invited to the Mountlake Terrace Library for a workshop on filing federal taxes.
You’ll learn the differences between employees and contractors, how your business structure affects your filing, tax red flags and what income is taxable versus deductible.
The workshop is taught by Rizwan Chaudhry of NW Accountants.
The event is 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday.
The library is at 23300 58th Ave., Mountlake Terrace.

Student art, podcast and writing contest
Middle and high school students can showcase their talents in an art, podcast and writing contest through April.
Put on by the Washington Secretary of State, the contest parallels Legacy Washington’s “Ahead of the Curve” exhibit that celebrates trailblazing women in the state’s history.
Participants are asked to explore the question of who they believe is ahead of the curve in their community and why, and respond through a piece of art, a podcast or writing.
To participate, students must submit an entry form along with their project by April 30.
Entry forms and more information about the contest can be found at www.sos.wa.gov/assets/legacy/aotc/legacy-wa-aotc-contest.pdf.
Judges will select winners based on creativity, potential social impact and professionalism for each category in grades six through eight, and nine through 12.
They will receive a gift card and a special certificate during an awards ceremony in the Secretary of State’s Office in Olympia in June.
Their pieces will be featured on the secretary of state’s website and social media accounts.
