Most companies dread a sales and use tax audit. Some industries, like manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, and construction, face audit risks that are higher than average, particularly when it comes to complex compliance scenarios like consumer use tax and tax-exempt sales.
The bottom line is if you buy or sell products or services that are exempt from sales tax, your compliance challenges and audit risk can be complex and burdensome. For each non-taxable sale, you must associate an exemption certificate (or more than one, in some cases) proving tax wasn't owed.
Gathering and managing these documents while fully understanding your obligations can quickly become overwhelming.
