As Washington State more aggressively pursues tax revenue through its main taxing authority, the Department of Revenue (DOR), audits, collections and compliance activities are on the rise. Following a recent series of decisions and new regulations, Washington’s DOR is stepping up tax audits of companies and individuals nationwide who do business in Washington State. When you need an experienced Washington business tax lawyer, contact us. We can help.
While Washington State has no income tax, it has a gross receipts tax and a very heavy sales and use tax that it imposes on companies and individuals nationwide that do business within Washington’s borders. The large sales tax liabilities incurred by some businesses in Washington even sometimes get shifted to the business owners themselves, who then need to protect themselves from a Department of Revenue levy.
Our office has experience in all phases of dispute resolution and settlement of tax disputes with Washington State’s Department of Revenue.
If your business is facing a DOR audit, it is not recommended that you go through it unprepared and unrepresented. Audits can be dangerous and your tax exposure can be significant. The right, experienced tax professional may save your business a lot of money in the audit process.
