What is a business sales tax audit?
A: A business sales tax audit is a government initiative that investigates the accuracy of a particular business’ sales tax record keeping. If you believe you may be the object of a sales tax audit, you will most likely receive a letter from the department of revenue in your state alerting you of the audit. The core components of a audit are:
- Sales tax returns
- Sales and purchase invoices
- Cash receipts
- Resale certification
- Bank statements
Sales tax audits are conducted on a state level. Each state’s sales tax audit process will be different, therefore.
