Do You Have Sales Tax Guilt?

We’ve heard horror stories of the employee who quit and left behind a mess hidden in a desk drawer of unpaid sales tax notices and employees who single-handily risked the entire business due to negligence in sales tax. While you probably aren’t hiding away sales tax notices and threats to the business in your desk drawer, are you guilty of not doing everything right all the time? Sales tax is hard and requires excessive amounts of time if you don’t have the right resources. It can easily mean that you need to forgo doing the best job possible just to get sales tax out the door. But ignoring sales tax mistakes won’t make them go away. If you’re hiding something in your sales tax work and hoping your boss or coworkers won’t find it or are just worried because you can’t reliably do it all all the time, we can help—and maybe even make you look like a hero in the process.

No matter whose fault it is, there are bound to be errors in sales tax paperwork if you’re not using an automated solution to help you. Sales tax is complex and requires huge amounts of time if you’re manually checking each transaction—which means hardly anyone actually does. You might feel guilty that you’re not doing everything in your power to ensure sales tax is right but you just don’t have the time. We can help. FileLINK, our flagship sales tax filing software, goes through each and every transaction and verifies that all the information is correct. The best part, most of our customers say, is that it verifies information is correct in a matter of minutes—not days like it could if you did it all by
hand.

Instead of having to hope that everything is correct and feeling guilty that you didn’t do the best job possible, you can rest assured that FileLINK has you covered. If you’re cleaning up a mess that another employee left behind, our software RecoveryLINK is a great tool to use that looks through past sales tax information and guides you through all the steps to correct errors. If you found a few sales tax notices and don’t know what to do, give us a call and we’ll help.
