Events, Seminars

Gain a better understanding of your sales and use tax obligations in Pennsylvania and help keep your company compliant.

Pennsylvania’s Governor and various members of the General Assembly, in both parties, have proposed major sales and use tax rate increases and/or tax base expansions to generate funds for local school district property tax relief and other uses. In addition, legislators have introduced numerous more narrow amendments, the Department of Revenue has issued various guidance, many decisions have been published by the Board of Finance and Revenue and many cases have been settled or decided while under court appeal. And, of course, taxpayers have simply encountered many issues in day-to-day dealings with auditors and other representatives of the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. This topic will help you sharpen your knowledge and skills for avoiding assessments of tax and penalties, while paying only the tax your company truly owes.
