Tax Training

You don’t have time to be an expert in everything. The laws and codes that govern Sales and Use taxes are particularly complex and variable based on a variety of factors including, use, destination, industry, etc.

We provide customized Sales and Use Tax Training that is tailored to your industry so you can take advantage of the exemptions and special rules that apply to your specific business. Each training session lasts one hour and comes with handout materials that are industry specific. If you are also an AP Audit client, your training sessions will include specific examples from your own files that will have even more impact and relevance for your AP and Purchasing staff.

Training sessions can be combined to suit your needs.
