We get it: It’s difficult for your business to comply with the complex and varied sales and use tax rules in state and local taxing jurisdictions across the US. The lines are only getting blurrier given the increase in on-line transactions, the provision of electronic services vs. tangible personal property and the changing landscape caused by developments in case-law and legislation. This is compounded by states becoming more aggressive and strategic in auditing taxpayers to recover tax dollars and fill budget gaps.
For these reasons, the sales/use tax arena is rife with pitfalls for any business, no matter the size, industry, or physical footprint. GBQ’s Sales and Use Tax team has the experience not only in consulting clients but also working in the corporate tax departments that are facing these same issues. This uniquely positions GBQ to assist in managing its clients’ risks and opportunities in these areas.
