Audit Process in Georgia

A Georgia sales tax audit starts with a notice from the state revenue agency. The following steps include meeting with state representatives to discuss the reason behind the audit and then conduct an examination by comparing three to four years' worth of your taxpayer’s books and records to all reported items on the sales tax return.

At the end of the audit, the auditors list their findings on the sales and use tax audit report. If you disagree with the auditors’ assessment, you file a contest or protest the findings and perhaps litigate your case.

Whether you are going through the audit process or interested in protesting the state revenue agency’s findings, Georgia Sales Tax Helper LLC can challenge and work with state sales tax auditors to settle your case. We have helped thousands of clients overcome their sales tax issues.

Sales Tax Audit FAQ

  • Q:What triggers a tax audit?

    A:You inadvertently waived a red flag or your company landed in the small percentage selected for a random sales tax audit. These red flags include: Cash-based businesses, prior audits that resulted in owed sales tax, your sales reported to the state didn’t match what you reported to the IRS, a high volume of exempt sales, filing a refund claim, or a high number of credits. There’s also a possibility that your business happens to be in an industry that your state suspects rampant under-reporting. Often times, they will target industries effected by complex sales tax laws.

  • Q:How do I prepare for a sales tax audit?

    A:1. RESPOND to the notice; 2. Get organized; 3. Identify/hire your audit manager; 4. Notify your auditor of who they will be corresponding with; 5. Compare your sales tax returns against the federal tax return; 6. Test at least 1 month of exempt sales; 7. Reconcile your sales tax payable account versus your sales tax payments; 8. Review your fixed assets purchased — did you pay sales tax on them?; 9. Review your purchases on your key expense accounts to ensure tax was paid on your purchases.

  • Q:How long do sales tax audits last?

    A:Audit duration can vary dramatically from state to state and from business to business. Waiver issues aside, an audit generally takes 3-7 months to complete. Surprisingly, some audits can drag on for a few years. Time factors usually swing on the size of the company, the ability to produce reliable and organized documentation, and the level of sophistication of the business.

  • Q:Can I do this myself or should I hire a sales tax lawyer or a sales tax consultant?

    A:We all enjoy the occasional DIY project, especially when it saves us money. Before opting to go that route, consider the risk vs. rewards involved. Avalara recently conducted a study and found that the average sales tax audit costs around $115,000. When facing a sales tax audit, it is beneficial to have someone with knowledge of the financial implications on your side. That is where sales tax professionals, such as those at Sales Tax Helper LLC, can save you a lot of heartache and money by avoiding a few missteps.
