Some people wonder why they would need a sales tax consultant if they already have a CPA or a bookkeeper. Here is the reason why. Sales and use tax is a specialized niche area. We like to compare it to being a specialist versus being a GP. While your book keeper or CPA may be helpful in myriads of other ways, sales and use tax compliance is not their speciality. (That is no shade to the CPAs and bookkeepers out here!). We discuss it here.
- Sales tax is a specialized field.
- Sales tax compliance is highly nuanced & can be complicated.
- Sales tax compliance need to be re-evaluated when you expand your product or service offerings or into a different jurisdiction.
- Talk to your CPA and bookkeeper about your concerns.
