State and local tax laws are complex and always changing. It’s difficult for businesses like yours to commit the resources necessary to stay current on the tax laws that touch your business. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for companies to pay too much or, unintentionally, fall out of compliance for not paying enough.
