Nobody looks forward to being audited. It’s one of those things that keeps you up at night. And that’s totally understandable. Most people feel that they are completely defenseless if they get audited…but it doesn’t have to be that way.

At the Sales Tax Institute, we’ve taught many professionals how to empower themselves so they are the ones in control of a tax audit, not the auditor. Understanding the steps of an audit and what you can do to prepare and protect yourself are your first line of defense if you get audited. This webinar will teach you how to take control of a sales tax audit and minimize your audit risk.

Who should attend? This webinar is intended for financial and operations personnel—including tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing and credit—who deal with sales and use tax as part of their responsibilities. The course is also designed for general practitioners, with minimal to no experience.
