Sales Tax Consultations
We Eliminate the Uncertainty of Sales Tax for Your Start-Up
If you’re scaling a start-up, it’s important that you get the right advice early in your business so you don’t have to deal with the uncertainty, fear, and stress of a costly sales tax audit looming over you.
Let’s face it… sales tax is complicated and can be quite miserable to deal with yourself if you don’t have the knowledge and expertise of an expert guiding you. And a single misstep and cost a small fortune. According to the Wakefield Research Group, the average sales tax audit costs businesses $114,147. Crazy, right?
We offer start-ups top-tier sales tax advice so that you can “do-it-yourself” without “accidentally-killing-yourself” or it costing a fortune.
Questions Frequently Addressed During Consultations Include…
- How can I get sales tax set up and managed on my own affordably?
- Where do I owe sales tax and are the products I sell even taxable?
- What’s the best way to set up tax calculations on my website?
- How can I purchase inventory tax-free with resale certificates?

Emerging E-Commerce Companies including direct-to-consumer sellers, marketplace sellers, print-on-demand sellers, and dropshippers making less than $1m/year in annual sales.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not a start-up, can I still use this service?
No. Our process and services are entirely focused on emerging businesses making less than $1 million/year in sales. If you’re making more than this please check out our parent company, TaxValet.
What happens if I don't use the full hour?
If we don’t use the full time together during our initial call, you can schedule a follow-up call within thirty days to use the remaining balance of time.
Will I have all of my questions answered during the call?
Most start-ups will gain a high level of clarity after only one call and may not have any follow-up questions. We know sales tax like the back of our hands and will answer questions you have as quickly as possible. Depending on the breadth and depth of questions, additional calls may be required. Some questions, though, may require separate research projects. This is especially true for things like product taxability research (which we refer out to a state and local tax attorney).
Can you handle my sales tax filings and payments for me?
No. Our goal is to get start-ups to a point where they can manage their sales tax in-house and provide them with the advice they need to do it correctly themselves. Once you’re doing over $1M/year in revenue, you should check out our parent company, TaxValet which offers an all-inclusive sales tax service.
