Wouldn't it be nice to get insight from a state tax auditor before you had to meet one? Most people fear the dreaded notice from the department of revenue (DOR) because sales and use tax audits are an inconvenience at best and very costly at their worst. Circumstances place you and the auditor at odds, where you can't ask for advice, pick their brain on how to avoid penalties, or seek their counsel at any time during the process.
State tax auditors have seen just about everything and can offer advice no one else can. That's why we created this guide. We found four former state tax auditors who are also sales and use tax compliance experts and asked them what advice they'd give companies to increase their chances of a quick and painless experience if and when the auditor comes knocking.
