Sales & Use Tax


1- Did You Collect Some Taxes And Did Not Submit it to Texas Comptroller? And


2- Did You Realize that You Did Not Pay/Collect Sales or Use Tax?

      Let us help you submit it to the Comptroller.

(Refer to our RESOURCES tab for details), or call us for a FREE consultation at 713-298-8804!


How Do I Qualify For the VDA?

        VDAs are offered to taxpayers who have not been contacted regarding an audit or investigation, either verbally or in writing. Call us if you are not sure.


What Are The Benefits of a VDA?

      Penalties will be waived.
Interest will be waived on taxes voluntarily disclosed and paid that were not collected

       Liabilities due to failure to collect taxes and/or file the applicable reports will be limited to reports due four years from the initial taxpayer contact date

        But all taxes that were actually collected by the seller need to be remitted (i.e., there is no four-year limitation on tax collected not remitted).

       Go to the RESOURCES tab for more information on VDAs. I guarantee you, it will be worth your while and you don't have to thank me later. Call us for FREE consultation at 713-298-8804
