I started my accounting career as a cost accountant for a manufacturer – and then later became the controller of a hospital. It was around this time that I noticed state auditors would arrive on-site around 9:30 a.m. - and go home at 3:30 p.m. And I thought to myself, I could do that job… and for 10 years I did. While I enjoyed my work as a Arkansas Senior Field Tax Auditor II, I eventually decided to expand my horizons and worked as a senior tax consultant and then as a state and local manager. In 1992, I started my own practice performing refund reviews, audit defense work and educational tax seminars in Arkansas.
I love what I do and I view this new "Arkansas State Sales Tax" blog as a means to share what I have learned over the years about Arkansas sales and use taxes. For my first post (which will follow shortly) I've written an overview of Arkansas' sales tax - which is BTW actually a gross receipts tax. I'll also explain a few interesting quirks...
If you have questions about Arkansas Sales and Use Taxes, I invite you to post a question or comment. Of course, don’t be surprised if I ask you five questions in return as knowing the facts always helps to identify the correct tax decision.
