Multi-State Tax Compliance
For taxpayers who reside outside of California but continue to engage in business within California, we offer assistance with California tax compliance disputes. At Advocate Solutions, Inc., we focus on tax compliance issues for multi-state businesses and individuals.
The following are examples of the types of issues we handle:
- Sales and use tax audits and appeals: Sales tax is collected by retailers in California. The California use tax is levied on goods used, stored or consumed in California when the goods are purchased from a multi-state seller. Our firm has expertise in tax collection issues, appeals and amnesty programs involving these taxes.
- Special fees and taxes: If your business has an operation in the state, you may be subject to specialty taxes and fees such as the diesel fuel tax, excise tax and environmental waste fees.
- Multi-state corporations: If your business has employees in California, you are responsible for collecting and paying state payroll taxes. If your business sells tangible personal property in California, you may be responsible for collecting and paying use tax in California. We can advise you on tax elections that will result in an accurate tax bill and can determine if an exemption applies so that you can avoid compliance problems in the future.
- Exit Strategies: If you want to change your residence from California to another state and do not want to pay California income taxes after you relocate to another state, we can advise you on exit strategies that comply with state law.
