Sales Tax Automation

Do you completely understand sales and use taxes?

Are you a monthly filer? Quarterly? Annual? Are you subject to use tax? Are some or all of your sales tax-exempt?  How do you handle tax-exempt sales to a nonprofit? Do you purchase any goods or services that might be tax-exempt if you knew how to work with vendors to get tracked as a reseller? We’ve helped clients with all of these questions and more.

Are a portion of your sales exempt from sales tax?  Are you certain? (We’ve had web designers, computer repair folks, technology consutlants, nonprofits, and tradesmen surprised to find out that some or all of their revenues are subject to sales tax.)

For instance, bookkeeping services are defined as a taxable data processing service in Texas.  Because it is classified as data processing, the first 20% of each sale is tax exempt.  Web design, word processing and a myriad of other services can fall into odd categories requiring special tracking.  We can help you get it set up right!

Are you subject to state use taxes?  You likely are – even if you were not aware of the obligation!  Any purchases you make that are not subject to sales tax should be reviewed for adherence to state use tax rules.  We’ve had clients who purchased thousands of dollars of equipment or services where we needed to compute and remit use tax.

Sales and use tax compliance can be complex, confusing and stressful.  If you choose to have us help manage your sales tax needs, we can make compliance much easier! We partner with you to streamline and review your processes to ensure compliance.
