Sales tax audits in the printing industry are inevitable, and the typical result is a large assessment of tax, interest, and penalties as well as a new, stricter appeals process.
Beginning in 2018, most duties performed by the State Board of Equalization
(BOE) have transferred to the newly created California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA)and the Office of Tax Appeals. The restructuring has changed the audit and appeal process-a process which will make it more challenging for companies to contest and appeal the results of sales and use tax audits.
As a result, it's now even more critical to avoid the major sales "traps" that printers' experience.
Among the topics discussed in this fast-paced meeting are:
The NEW CDTFA structure
Special printing aids
Taxing not-for-profit organizations
Depreciation on lithographic presses, & other pertinent topics
Master the ins-and-outs of sales tax now so you won't incur three years of tax liability later. Knowing the rules will save you a good deal of money and frustration in the future.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Company owners, accountants, bookkeepers, and billing professionals who are responsible for their company's application and collection of California sales and use tax.
