TaxValet’s AuditReady Action Plan

Why you need more than just software to protect you from sales tax audits

Missing permits can lead to costly penalties

Sales tax audits are practically inevitable, and auditors are always looking for any detail to expand the audit's scope. Did you know that simply having an employee working remotely in a new state can trigger sales tax nexus and require a permit? Keeping up with these changes is crucial, but complex.

How TaxValet helps: Unlike software solutions that only scratch the surface, we conduct in-depth nexus reviews, considering dozens of factors such as whether your business has a physical presence in a state (like an office or warehouse), if you work with affiliates or partners located in different states, and your company's marketing presence, including online advertising and attending trade shows. This ensures you have the correct permits in every state where you have obligations, preventing costly penalties.


A single misstep can expose you to more liability

Auditors are skilled at uncovering potential liabilities, and even seemingly innocent interactions can lead to unintended consequences. They may request information you're not legally obligated to provide, hoping to expand the audit's scope. Without expert guidance, you could unknowingly expose your business to further risks and penalties.

How TaxValet helps: Our experienced team acts as your advocate throughout the audit process. We'll ensure you only provide the necessary information, protect your rights, and navigate the auditor's requests strategically, minimizing your exposure and maximizing your chances of a favorable outcome.

Inaccurate tax settings put you at risk

Even if you believe you're doing everything right, audits can still wreak havoc on your business. Discrepancies between sales tax collected and the amount due can signal underlying issues with your system configuration, exposing you to costly penalties during an audit.

How TaxValet helps: We conduct regular tax variance checks, identifying and addressing any discrepancies to ensure accurate tax collection and minimize your exposure.


Hidden issues can derail your compliance

Most business owners lack the experience to manage an audit strategically and protect their rights. Even seemingly minor oversights in your sales tax compliance can turn into major audit risks. Without expert review and proactive management, these problems can easily go unnoticed.

How TaxValet helps: We conduct in-depth internal audits, meticulously reviewing your account to identify, prevent, and fix potential issues before they become audit triggers.
