Sales and Use Tax for Manufacturers in Michigan

Make sure you are in full compliance when reporting sales and use tax for manufacturers in Michigan.

If you work in the manufacturing industry, sales and use taxes can have a substantial impact on your bottom line. This topic will talk about the common exemptions available to manufacturers in Michigan, potentially opening your business up to tremendous cost savings. Learn which steps of the process are included in the industrial processing exemption, when a partial exemption could be claimed for property you thought was 100% taxable, and whether sourcing software in the cloud can save you tax dollars. Additionally, you will learn about the documentation requirements for the successful defense of a sales/use audit, and the benefits and pitfalls of using a direct pay permit to manage your use tax compliance in Michigan.
