Sales and Use Tax Consulting Services
Do you need help with sales tax and compensating use tax? You are not alone. Currently, 45 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and nearly 10,000 local jurisdictions impose a sales tax and a compensating use tax. The specific mix of products and services subject to tax varies widely by jurisdiction as do the definitions of such. In addition, the products and services to which sales and use taxes potentially apply are constantly evolving creating a never-ending stream of new taxability questions.
Keeping up and complying with the sales and use tax laws can be daunting. Overcompliance is wasteful and can also cause problems with customers. Undercompliance can result in significant unexpected audit assessments with penalties and interest sometimes exceeding the original tax amount. There is also the potential for individuals deemed “responsible persons” to be held personally liability for unpaid sales and use taxes of their company. In some cases, criminal prosecution is also possible.
