Product and Service Taxability Review

Sales tax is frequently paid on exempt items, either to the supplier or to the state, where a legal exemption is available.  Our team will perform a review of your purchases to identify potential refunds of sales and use taxes. 

In addition, we will review the sales side of your business, to ensure sales tax is being collected on all taxable purchases to limit your potential exposure.
