Understanding New York Sales Tax

Lawyers For Businesses With New York State Sales Tax Issues

A typical investigative or audit scenario involves a small business with significant cash receipts that is vulnerable to charges of understated revenues and tax payments. We can intervene on your behalf with the department investigators to help make sure that your potential civil liability does not turn criminal, and to limit your exposure on past-due tax remittances and penalties.

Our clients include restaurants, bars, retail stores, service businesses, auto shops, building contractors, and licensed professionals. Our objective is to protect you from overstated estimates and excessive penalties. At the same time, our lawyers work to keep a small problem from getting larger.

The lawyers of Greenspan & Greenspan have more than 50 years of experience with the resolution of local, state and federal tax problems, and our experience with sales tax issues in New York State can help you find a way to compromise a current tax problem and keep your exposure to a manageable level. The formulation of realistic and workable payment plans is usually an essential step toward avoiding bigger problems.

New York State's chronic budget problems mean that the state has every incentive to pursue sales tax claims aggressively. The sooner you engage our firm to represent you, the wider your alternatives for an acceptable compromise might be. Delays in responding to department inquiries will only make matters worse and remove valuable resolution options from further discussion. It is better for you to come to us before the state comes to you!
