For many businesses state and local taxes make up one-half or more of the total tax burden, which includes sales/use, payroll, property and income taxes at both the state and local level. These taxes are not like federal income taxes and are quite complex. Therefore it is unfortunate, but quite common, for a business to receive a large tax assessment plus penalties and interest from a state or local governmental agency. It is also a surprise when businesses learn that they have been overpaying taxes for a number of years. Berntson Porter & Company can help eliminate the uncertainty of state and local taxes so you can be confident the amount of tax being paid is correct.
