Overview

2017 was a HUGE year for sales and use tax changes and 2018 is proving to be just as busy!

But with the new year comes new opportunities to expand your knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of changes that can impact your career or business. Sales and use tax provide plenty of these opportunities, as new legislation is frequently enacted and taxability rules change often across the states. You need to stay on top of these changes and how they affect your business…not doing so could lead to serious 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.
