  • Reverse Income and Sales Tax Return Reviews – At SALT Partners our income and sales tax return reviews are more in-depth than then those preformed by larger public accounting firms.  Big 4 economics require them to limit their investment in time in your return review often limiting the refunds to a few key issues.  This results in smaller refunds to you.  Because we don’t require our personnel to achieve billable hour rates from reverse income and sales tax return reviews, we can take a much deeper dive into your returns.  Your benefit is larger refunds at lower cost to you.  Our contingent fee percentages are typically 15% to 30% less than the large public accounting firms putting more money in your pocket.

  • Sales Taxation Analysis – Are you collecting the proper sales tax in the thousands of potential jurisdictions imposing state or local sales taxes?  SALT Partners performs taxation analysis for sales and use tax that helps ensure that you are collecting and remitting the proper sales tax.  This analysis helps reduce audit risk from under-collecting sales tax.  Further, it ensures that you are not over collecting tax from your customers.
