KINGWOOD, Texas, Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- State Tax Advisors announces the need for businesses to minimize risk and be prepared for a sales tax audit at a time when more states are exercising economic nexus. Outsourcing sales tax services to the experienced professionals at State Tax Advisors ensures the best defense against regulations that are always in flux and against being flagged for a sales tax audit. The sales tax services at State Tax Advisors have assisted numerous businesses in most states with implementing successful strategies to save money and avoid a sales tax audit.
"We give [clients] a detailed report of findings that identifies everything they're doing right, what needs improvement, and recommendations. We flowchart the processes," says Riley Epps, president of State Tax Advisors. Concerning economic nexus, Epps says, "States are obviously hurting for money. They try to make money as fast as they can by sending questionnaires around the country, increasing audits, increasing our business."
Nexus is the term that describes the legal presence a business has in a particular state. The economic nexus principle, which is being adopted in many states, stipulates that businesses do not have to have a physical location in a state in order to be subjected to the taxes of that state. Instead, business income has to meet certain requirements for taxation. States have thresholds that establish this tax liability. Washington State, for example, collects tax revenue from any service-related business with physical nexus or if 25 percent of their payroll, property or royalties are collected in the state.
While economic nexus is proving a useful tool for states to increase revenue, the larger tax burden is costly to businesses. According to the American Association of Advertising Agencies, a national trade organization, tax consultants are predicting the expansion of economic nexus to nearly all states in five years' time.
