Advanced Issues in Sales and Use Tax

Description

Sales and use taxes are often a company’s biggest tax problem, particularly in Colorado. In this
class we will tackle some of the most troublesome sales tax issues confronting your business or
clients.
In this four-hour presentation, Bruce Nelson, M.A., CPA, will provide deep dive into sales and
use tax. Using concrete examples, Bruce will explain both the theory and practice that are
driving today’s current sales/use tax controversies and developments. It is impossible to know
the sales/use tax laws of 45 states and the 71 home-rule Colorado cities, so the emphasis will
be on what we can know and, most importantly, the skills necessary to approach and address
the sales and use tax issues with which you are confronted. An accompanying manual will
include the material provided in class plus additional coverage that will serve as a springboard
for your further research.
