Session Description

Resolving state tax audits effectively and efficiently can avoid tax controversies and limit tax assessments. This session will address the pros and cons of litigation, and address how various approaches taken at the return preparation, audit, and appeals stage can decrease a company’s exposure, and how to best position a company’s state tax controversies to win.

Learning Objectives

After the session, attendees will be able to limit the scope of their audits, decrease time spent working on audits, decrease exposure on audits, protect important tax positions, and reduce the need to appeal assessments.
