CATEGORY: Taxation
  Online & Mobile
2 CPE Credits
Level: Basic

The primary objective of a sales and use tax audit is to determine, with the least possible expenditure of time, whether the business selected for audit has paid the correct measure of tax. This interactive self-study course addresses how a taxpayer would prepare for the audit by educating the taxpayer on how the audit is selected, how the state notifies the taxpayer of the audit and explains the period of time the sales tax audit will cover. Next, the course walks the taxpayer through the initial audit conference and the audit plan that the state will employ. In addition, the course explains the sales tax audit tests and procedures utilized by the state sales tax auditors. Finally, the audit closing conference that the state will hold with the taxpayer and how the taxpayer protests tax assessments by the state is discussed. This basic level course is most beneficial to professionals new to sales and use tax audits but may also benefit an experienced professional with limited exposure to this topic.
