Be a Hero to Your Clients - Save them thousands of dollars in sales taxes.

We wanted to take a minute to let you know of some recent success stories. We have found that many times a company’s

CPA can look like the “hero” by bringing in our expertise, helping to solidify client relationships.

Success Story #1

Problem: A CPA firm came to us when their client, a contractor working in construction, was assessed a $60,000 sales tax liability during an audit.

Solution: We identified exemptions relating to new construction and exempt taxpayers; and found sales tax overpayments on materials.

Result: The $60,000 liability turned into $80,000 in refunds – a $140,000 savings!


Success Story #2

Problem: A manufacturer believed it was being overcharged sales tax on electricity and gas.

Solution: We provided a predominant use study making the client eligible for exemption on their energy purchases. In addition, our review of client’s transactions uncovered refunds on materials, supplies, equipment and services eligible for the manufacturing exemption.

Result: $70,000 in refunds to client. The client also anticipates a $15,000 per year savings going forward on energy alone.


Success Story #3

Problem: A national restaurant franchisee was assessed a $70,000 liability during a sales tax audit.

Solution: We were successful in eliminating many expenses from the audit schedule. Additionally, our review generated substantial refunds on purchases.

Result: The client recognized $40,000 in savings from decreased audit liability and refunds.

Provide these value-added benefits to your clients.
