Let’s face it…sales and use taxes can be complicated, time consuming and just plain awful at times. Throw in expansive filing requirements, high tax rates, extensive laws and regulations, and one of the most sophisticated and aggressive taxing authorities in the United States, and we have the regulatory jungle we like to call New York State.
While I may be exaggerating a bit for effect, sales tax compliance in the Empire State can be very difficult. That’s why I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the ins and outs of New York sales tax with SalesTaxSupport.com readers, including my nearly 20 years of experience as a sales and use tax professional, as well as a CPA, working with both large and small businesses in a wide variety of industries. Hopefully I can provide you with some timely information and guidance, answer your questions and make things a little easier for you and your business, so it doesn’t feel like you’re going over Niagara Falls in a barrel the next time you have a New York State sales tax issue.
