Managing Pesky Alternatives Taxes

Enter your information below to be notified if this webinar is offered again.
1.5 CPE credits

Most sales tax professionals specialize in just that – sales tax – and may not be aware of how to manage alternative taxes such as Washington’s business & occupation tax, Arizona’s transaction privilege tax, Ohio’s commercial activity tax, and more. And since some of these taxes look and feel like a sales tax because they are based on gross receipts and don’t have deductions similar to income taxes, they become the responsibility of the sales tax staff. If you deal with any of these taxes currently or in the future, you need to make sure that you are handling them correctly, as the rules may differ from traditional sales and use tax.

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. This webinar is also beneficial for anyone who needs a better understanding of any of the following: Washington Business & Occupation (B&O) Tax, Arizona Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT), OH Commercial Activity Tax (CAT), Environmental fees, E-device taxes, and local taxes.
