Sales Tax Litigation Consultant in California
Our California sales tax litigation consultants can help you identify your Taxpayer problems, it usually begins when they receive a notice from the state agency, which indicates that the agency intends to conduct a tax audit on them or their business. It is often wise to contact a tax consultants to be sure you know your rights and to ensure the auditor has overstepped its bounds.
Businesses will often utilize their CPAs or, occasionally, in-house tax department to handle tax audits. Even if the audit is handled expertly by the CPA or tax department, the state agency may still take aggressive positions against the taxpayer or may simply be unreasonable. After the assessment is issued, one can protest or challenge the assessment of the agency and if this is not done, then amount you owe becomes final. At this point you can still usually ask for reconsideration of the assessment in the form of a settlement negotiation. When settlement negotiations are not working during or after the audit, then the taxpayer has a small window of time to use the only other means of getting a just result – controversy. If a taxpayer does not file a complaint or petition within a short deadline, generally 30 to 60 days of the notice of determination, then the ability to litigate or even protest their tax debt becomes much more difficult.

A California Tax consultant can help you settle your case
When a taxpayer sues the state taxing agency, it can change how the Department views a tax situation, sometimes dramatically. The litigation department of the agency may decide that the issue an auditor was so worked up about is not a viable issue to litigate. Alternatively, the litigation department might view the potential consequences of losing the case and being bound by the decision for all other taxpayers. Under the right circumstances, this can make settlement negotiations much easier and more successful once litigation has begun. If our tax litigation consultants in California bring your case to litigation, the DOR’s ability to reach a compromise changes, which may be used to your business or your client’s advantage. Additionally, a large percentage of litigated cases are settled without a final court decision.
