December 19, 2022: State Sales Tax Exams vs IRS Exams: A Review of State & Federal Audit Techniques and How to Protect Your Clients
If you have ever handled a sales tax exam by your state you know how aggressive state tax auditors can be. This program will walk attendees through how sales tax audits are done and do so by comparing and contrasting these techniques with IRS examination techniques for both income tax and federal excise tax. We will review the techniques used by the various states and how practitioners can help protect their client from the overzealous state auditor. The program will compare the state audit techniques used by the IRS auditors so practitioners get a well-rounded review and comparison between the two approaches and what they need to know to help their client handle and challenge each type of audit.
- Explain both the IRS and state audit selection process
- Identify similarities and differences in the approach to testing for federal and state audits
- Describe how the audit process is different from the state testing techniques and the federal testing techniques
- Suggested best practicing for reducing likelihood of audits and refuting audit assessments

And we’ve seen situations where multiple states claim a taxpayer as a resident!

In addition, we will review what US Citizens need to do for the IRS if living abroad in terms of filing and compliance.
- Explain the many factors used by states to determine residency and domicile status
- Identify examination techniques for challenging the taxpayer’s status
- Describe planning ideas to stand up to state challenges of status
- Best practices for filing federal and possibly state returns for those living abroad
