We can help turn your state and local tax obligation from an unpleasant surprise to a budgeted amount.

Audit Defense

We provide audit defense work for clients undergoing state sales and use tax audits ensuring they pay only what is due under statute and that the audit also reflects overpayments made during the period under audit. Included in our audit defense work is a review of any state proposed statistical sampling tests to confirm that it accurately reflects our client's transactions.

Tax Overpayments to Vendors

We review vendor invoices to recover tax overpayments made to suppliers. Our in depth review allows us to recover taxes overpaid as the result of state law changes, court decisions, state policy and administrative changes.

Custom Tax Training

We believe knowledge and training are two keys to minimizing both sales tax liability and overpayments. To this end CMS provides several services for our clients. We review the client's current sales and use tax-reporting procedures and make recommendations that will result in a less complex and more accurate reporting process. We provide customized, on-site sales and use tax-training sessions for our clients. Because these training sessions can be targeted to specific transactions or specific departments this service is a client favorite.

Item Master File Review

CMS believes that our clients should have the ability and the confidence to be proactive with their suppliers in the area of sales and use tax. To assist our clients with this we will review their item master to verify that the tax codes reflect current state tax laws and regulations.

Personal Attention

Finally CMS provides our clients with consistent and personal contact for sales and use tax questions that occur in the normal course of doing business. Whether it is question regarding a vendor invoice or how to minimize tax on a new capital purchase we can help.
