Sales and Use Tax


Sales and use tax rules are more complex than ever, presenting known and unknown risks to businesses of all sizes.

The complexity is compounded by states becoming more aggressive and strategic in auditing taxpayers to recover tax dollars and fill budget gaps. As a result, businesses must understand their sales tax exposure, mitigate risk and past exposure, and establish processes and systems to ensure ongoing compliance. We provide our clients with proactive, practical advice on sales and use tax filings and processes, taxability of products and services, and other related issues.  In addition to providing sound tax technical advice, our state and local tax (SALT) team can add value to your tax function through the following sales & use tax consulting services:
