Why should I hire a former BOE auditor to represent me in a sales tax audit?

Answer

The best way it helps is that it levels the playing field, the knowledge playing field, between the taxpayer and the Board. Taxpayers, generally speaking, don’t know the law and they don’t know the regulations, other than very basic ones.  Equally important, they don’t know what their rights are during an audit and their rights during the audit process. Having someone like myself represent you will level that playing field. In fact, in many cases the auditors I go up against are less knowledgeable about the law and Board policies and procedures than I am. Another interesting thing is that there are policies that are not really written down that you wouldn’t know about unless you worked at the Board.
