Join us for this very special workshop where Tax Attorney and National Speaker Eric Green will walk you through how sales tax audits are done, the techniques used by the various states and how practitioners can help protect their client from the overzealous state auditor. The program will compare the state audit techniques used by the IRS auditors so practitioners get a well-rounded review and comparison between the two approaches and what they need to know to help their client handle each type of audit.
This special workshop will include the following:
- A review both federal and state audit techniques
- A review of the different approaches taken by states than that of the IRS
- A detailed discussion of preparing for the audit
- Dealing with the auditor, the request for interview and the Quickbooks file
- What to do if the client’s records are less than stellar
- Issues surrounding cash intensive businesses
- The income tax impact of the bad sales tax audit
- Preparing and handling the appeal
The workshop will include detailed exhibits, forms and reviews of actual cases to illustrate the good and bad that can go on, and what to do when the audit starts to go off the rails. Eric will also review marketing techniques to help attendees find clients and add an extra $100,000 to their bottom line!
Due to the in-depth nature of this workshop, attendance is limited to 100 attendees so all attendee questions can be answered.
