Save your company big bucks ... while staying out of legal hot water

Course Description/Agenda

Program Description

Are you one of the many organizations OVERpaying or
UNDERpaying sales and use taxes?

Chances are, if you’ve not attended this comprehensive workshop, you may very well be. And that puts your organization at a serious disadvantage ...

If you’re OVERpaying — you’re throwing money away!

And, it may be more than you think possible! Even small overpayments over time can add up to big bucks — bucks that should be going to your organization’s bottom line. You and your organization work hard for your money — throwing it away just doesn’t make sense.

If you’re UNDERpaying — watch out for rough water ahead!
Make no mistake: The consequences of underpaying sales and use taxes can be severe. First, you can expect to undergo an excruciating audit. Next, your organization will be slapped with some potentially heavy penalties, be ordered to pay back taxes plus interest, and maybe even wind up with some steep legal bills. And, in some cases, you may be held personally accountable for tax mistakes (yikes!).

When it comes down to the dollars and cents that drive your organization, it pays to fully recognize your sales and use tax obligations. Attending this workshop is just a small investment of time and money, but it’s a critical investment for professionals committed to achieving a healthy bottom line.

Why struggle to keep up with sales and use tax laws and regulations when this workshop gets you up to speed in just one day?

Are you struggling with sales and use tax laws and regulations? You’re not alone! In fact, professionals across the nation agree that computing, tracking, and filing sales and use taxes are the toughest, most time-consuming responsibilities they face.

Perhaps you can relate to some of the most common complaints ...

“Tracking and handling sales and use taxes take a lot of time.”
“The laws are confusing, varying from state to state and area to area.”
“The forms are complex and often unclear.”
“The rules are always changing and it’s hard to keep on top of the new stuff.”
“No one seems to be able to answer my toughest questions.”
