We’ve updated the Basics course to get to intermediate concepts faster. We’re emphasizing Wayfair’s impact and are continuing our career development components that were popular last year.
Basics of Sales and Use Tax is a live training course that involves sessions covering the different fundamental sales tax concepts over a period of three days.
All attendees take classes together and the sessions involve a mixture of lecture, case studies, and group discussions. The unique curriculum is designed to focus on the most critical sales tax basics you need to help your company and/or clients today.
Classes are taught by the top professionals in the industry who have specialized backgrounds in different areas of sales and use tax so that you get a wide range of viewpoints. Sessions are interactive and informative and include time for Q&A.
PLUS, all attendees have the opportunity for one-on-one access to the faculty where they can answer specific questions and help with specific situations. Furthermore, we never allow government auditors to attend our live courses, so you can safely ask your specific questions without fear.
Basics of Sales and Use Tax is different than other training programs because it focuses on the practical application of sales and use tax concepts. We want you to be able to apply what you learn to your job right away when you are done. And we succeed. In fact, many alumni of the Basics of Sales and Use Tax course state that what they learned at Basics helps them better manage their day-to-day work for long after the course.
The course will help you be faster at decision making, improve your accuracy, and allows you to make more strategic sales tax recommendations with confidence. You will learn how to improve your workflow, eliminate guesswork, and reduce risk with a practical application, hands-on teaching approach.
The most unique part of Basics is the size. We limit the number of participants to under 65 students. We do this so that everyone gets a chance to learn, discuss, and make meaningful connections with one another. We keep things intimate so that you get the focused attention and guidance that you need to really understand sales and use tax.
In short, Basics helps you end nerve wracking, frustrating guesswork and instead shine as the go-to sales tax expert in your department.
