Plan and prepare for tax controversy
Businesses have always faced inquiries and audits by state tax authorities, but the rise of online commerce and new IRS initiatives mean audits are becoming more common—and complex. To meet this challenge, you may need outside support from a team specializing in state tax controversy.
As part of the KPMG State and Local Tax practice, our state tax Controversy Service helps companies prepare a detailed audit response and manage the review process as it unfolds. But if a controversy is expected, we help you develop a solid plan for resolving it successfully and efficiently.
Whether you’re dealing with a review from one or multiple states, the KPMG national network of professionals can help address the most difficult issues at every stage, from preplanning to final resolution. Our specialists offer informed advice and insight in key areas including:
- Identifying and mitigating exposure to audit risk
- Preparing for an audit and managing an appropriate response
- Representation and testimony during an appeal
Our SALT Controversy Service is backed by our national State Tax Resource Network, which provides tax professionals selected for their understanding of specific issues and knowledge of state law.
