Sales & Use Tax Consulting

Bowers & Company CPAs have helped many companies understand and comply with sales and use tax laws. Currently, 45 states and thousands of local jurisdictions impose such taxes. To add to this complexity, each state and local jurisdiction have different laws and regulations defining what products and services are taxable.

What Does This Mean For Your Business?

Your business may be unaware of its registration and filing requirements in each state. Failure to register and remit sales tax could result in significant penalties and interest. 

Ramifications from South Dakota V. Wayfair

A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision – South Dakota v. Wayfair changed the registration and filing requirements in many states. Our team is aware of how this decision will impact businesses in each state and can help you stay in compliance with the newly established rules.

“We engaged Bowers & Company to represent us in our most recent sales tax audit. Our assigned consultant, Michael Fralix, made immediate contact with us, explaining the process and guiding us through correct procedures in supplying the auditor’s requested documents. What could have been a frustrating, stress-filled process had we handled it on our own, turned out to be practically painless and resulted in a tax savings of approximately $1,000,000. We cannot recommend their services highly enough!”
