Risk…when it comes to our jobs and careers, we generally want as little of it as possible. And in the world of sales and use tax, it’s certainly no different. With the possibility of an audit (or worse, things like class action or qui tam action suits) always looming, ignorance is never a defense. In order to protect you and your company’s best interests, you need to be aware of the significant financial risks related to sales tax.

And you need to know the best way to mitigate those risks. Of course, we all have to play by the rules when it comes to taxes. But once you know the rules, you should also know the legal ways that you can minimize your risk. Reducing risk and making tax decisions accurately can have a significant beneficial impact on your company and make you a hero.

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.
