For many businesses, state and local taxes account for a large percentage of their overall tax liability. The current state and local tax environment presents a demanding set of challenges businesses must address because state taxing authorities are looking for ways to maximize tax revenue.

To successfully comply with state and local tax requirements and avoid scrutiny by state taxing authorities, it is important to accurately assess where your organization is conducting business, address the specific tax requirements within those states, and comply with the corresponding state and local statutory and regulatory responsibilities.

  • I have worked with Brown Smith Wallace for years because they understand my needs and my business. I was even more impressed when I was subject to a Missouri sales tax audit. Due to their high level of expertise, the Department of Revenue went away empty handed. I couldn’t have been happier.
