This course will brief tax professionals on the biggest tax hit most companies face—indirect taxes. The panel will outline the latest opportunities to minimize indirect taxes and offer experienced-based strategies to avoid critical and costly errors.


Indirect taxes account for nearly 90% of state and local business tax revenues and a substantial portion of corporate business tax expense. Tax pros must prepare to dig into corporate indirect tax compliance, reduce costs, and minimize tax liabilities—failing to do so is at your company's financial peril.

With thousands of tax jurisdictions and varying rules, proficient tax professionals must understand the impact indirect taxes have on their organizations. Such awareness will help professionals capitalize on tax opportunities for their companies, as well as avoid serious and costly, compliance errors.

Tax pros must approach indirect taxes with an eye toward optimizing cash flow and reducing risk. Learning to avoid common mistakes in accounting for indirect taxes will go a long way toward protecting your company's bottom line.

Listen as our experienced panel of state tax advisors updates you on the latest opportunities in the area of indirect tax and outlines best practices to avoid costly indirect tax mistakes through their own real-world examples.
