MONTPELIER, Vt. — The Vermont Department of Taxes wants to hear from small businesses about how it can help them navigate the state’s sometimes complex tax code.

The department is holding a series of public meetings around the state this month to gather feedback.

Commissioner Kaj Samsom says the listening tour and a working group will result in a report provided to the Vermont Legislature.

The mostly meetings will be held Aug. 10 at the Northeastern Vermont Development Association in St. Johnsbury and at the Statehouse in Montpelier; Aug. 11 at the University of Vermont’s Jeffords Hall in Burlington; and Aug. 24 at the Green Mountain Power Energy Innovation Center in Rutland and the fire facility in Bennington.
