When you get an audit notice, doing a little bit of work before the auditor arrives can be a big help.

There are different types of audits including a field audit in which there is a sales review as well as a purchases review. This video provides tips on how to manage the audit process. Our speaker provides the top 10 audit adjustments in sales tax to customers, including missing or improperly completed exemption certificates. He also provides the top 10 audit adjustments for use tax on purchases. This video also covers details on penalties with failure to keep records, and goes over post audit options.
