The first of the income tax meetings was hosted last week on Tuesday, Nov. 13 for employers and three additional meetings are still to come – two for East Lansing residents and employees and one for corporations, partnerships and trusts. The upcoming meetings will take place at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center (ELHCC), 819 Abbot Road, on the following dates:
