Voluntary Disclosure Agreements (VDAs)

After your company has determined where nexus has been established nexus and which products and/or services are taxable in those states, there should be a review of its potential tax exposure and how to address the exposure. Many states offer VDA programs which allow taxpayers to voluntary disclose tax liability and in return the state has the ability to limit the look-back period, negotiate resolution, and/or waive penalties.
Tanner LLC can help you with this process by approaching the state and local taxing authorities on an anonymous basis to identify potential outcomes prior to your disclosure. Tanner LLC will work with the taxing authority in negotiating minimizing interest, reducing penalties, and/or shortening the look-back period.

Reverse Sales and Use Tax Refund Projects

Sales tax is often paid on exempt items, either to the supplier or to the state, where a legal exemption is available. A few examples of industries with exemption opportunities include manufacturing, research and development; and medical devices.
