Sales and Use Tax Representation
The State sales and use taxing authority systems and audit programs are very complex in nature. ITS Corporation specializes in handling state sales tax matters in all 50 states. State sales and use tax audit cases are very serious and may even involve criminal elements. Therefore, any company or individual experiencing these type of tax problems should be proactive and address the issue without procrastination. Ignoring the sales and use tax notices can result in the assessment of large state sales and use tax judgements, excessive penalties and accumulated interest. In most states, a sales and use tax liability is legally as serious as employment and payroll tax liabilities.
From the state's perspective, you are viewed as the responsible party and have, in essence, stolen the sales and use tax-collected money by your failure to render and pay such sales and use taxes to the appropriate taxing authority agency. Therefore, state taxing authority agencies have extensive powers to recover the sales and use tax-collected money from your business or corporation with the seizure of assets and/or liquidation of your business.
If you or your business had received a sales tax or a use tax audit letter or if your business was incorrectly assessed sales and use taxes, contact us immediately.

As the sales and use tax audit proceeds, we will monitor the sales tax auditors work papers, present our rebuttals and propose adjustments. Additionally, we will search for refund and credit opportunities overlooked by most state sales tax auditors.

If the manager does not offer a satisfactory resolution, we will continue to appeal your case to the next level until we reach a satisfactory final resolution.
