Course Description

The purpose of a sales tax audit is to determine if the taxpayer is paying the correct amount of sales tax to the State. The audit is used to promote compliance with tax laws, and as a means of increasing state revenue. As part of the ordinary course of business, most companies eventually will undergo a sales and use tax audit. Sales tax auditors frequently think that businesses cheat or at least intentionally try to skirt the sales tax law. They begin most audits with the attitude of trying to determine how much the business owes, not whether or not the business owes anything. Should the auditor find a transaction that the Company erroneously paid tax on, it is doubtful they will let you know about the overpayment. 

Key topics: 

  • What is the audit process? 
  • Why did I get picked for audit? 
  • What happens if I am not registered for sales tax? 
  • Does the government get third party data? 
  • Will the government extract the data from my computer system? 
  • What is my responsibility for keeping books and records? 
  • What happens if the company owes money? 
  • Am I personally responsible? 
  • Does the government abate penalties? 
  • Will I go to jail for owing sales tax?
