Sales and use tax audits can represent a significant distraction to a small or medium sized business owner or to a larger corporate tax department with limited resources. Pulling paperwork for the auditor, managing the audit, answering the auditor’s questions, and negotiating an outcome can be time consuming at best and risky at worst.
Having TaxConnex act as the intermediary between you and the auditor provides several benefits:
- TaxConnex will conduct a pre-audit review of your systems and processes to identify any gaps or risk factors.
- We will control what information gets shared with the auditor. “Let me get with my client and get back to you on that” is a perfectly acceptable answer.
- TaxConnex will advise you as to where to push back and where to compromise.
- We will help determine the best audit approach – whether it’s a block or sampling approach.
TaxConnex Partners use their years of experience and relationships to manage your sales and use tax audit and let you focus on your business.
