How long does a sales tax audit last?
A: A sales tax audit can last anywhere from a few months up to a few years. An audit for a small business typically lasts around three months, and a global or multi-state company audit may take two years or longer. Other factors that may affect audit duration include:
- Size and complexity of the company
- Auditor workload
- Taxpayer resources available for audit completion
Sales tax audits are conducted on a state level, and each state’s sales tax audit process will be different.
