The best defense is a good offense and in the S&U tax world, that means knowing the issues before you are audited. DHG can perform a risk overview of your S&U tax function by doing a reverse S&U tax audit — one focused on identifying weaknesses in your systems and in identifying potential refund opportunities.

When such an audit does come, DHG can act as your representative before state S&U tax authorities. Our professionals are available to make formal replies to correspondence regarding sales and use tax liability and to provide explanations, schedules and other pertinent documents for tax examinations.

If your company operates in multiple states, whether by sales people, mail order or e-commerce, you may have unknowingly created nexus in states where you are not registered. Our team of professionals can negotiate with state officials to limit your exposure through voluntary compliance, helping you avoid forced compliance costs such as interest and penalties that may reach as high as 50 percent.

We can conduct an analysis of your day-to-day compliance activities as part of a reverse audit. We prepare and assist with filing refund claims with supporting documentation in order to procure your refund expeditiously.
