The first workshop in this NYCNoWC-sponsored series will present and encourage discussion on other similar programs that we might draw inspiration from. Some examples include the San Francisco Co-op ID card which enables discounts for members, loyalty programs like credit card rewards or rewards apps, and alternative forms of market transactions, like bartering, time banks, and alternative currencies.

Learn about tax liabilities, reporting requirements, and tips for preparing taxes for your worker cooperative. This workshop will provide an overview of federal, state, and local taxation of various forms of worker cooperatives (including worker coop corporations, partnerships, and LLCs). We will go into further details about taxes for worker cooperatives organized and taxed as partnerships and LLCs. There will also be time for worker owners to meet individually with an accountant or lawyer at the end of the session.
