If you’re a business owner and you deal with sales taxes, getting as organized as possible is one of the best things you can do to decrease stress. It’s a good idea to get tax compliant sooner rather than later, as business can get in the way and before you know it, you’re late for the deadline. You won’t realize you’re not properly prepared until that sense of panic hits or an audit arrives in the mail. Make sure you’re not wishing you had acted earlier to ensure sales tax compliance with these tips.
