About This Course:
This webinar prepares state tax professionals to establish reliable internal controls for data management in order to make reliable data more accessible to staff for use in preparing sales tax returns and meeting state audit challenges.

Course Description

Effective data management is crucial for sales tax professionals at large multi-state companies. Sifting through the mountain of data from general ledger accounts, sales invoices, exemption certificates and other sources is a tedious undertaking.

Streamlined data management isn't as simple as selecting the right software platform. Software implementation requires thoughtful pre-planning and a hands-on approach from the tax staff. Internal controls must be established to ensure the tax department uses software to its full potential.

Improving your company's data management infrastructure can simplify the completion of returns, make audits run more smoothly, and free up tax staff to focus on value-added functions of the corporate tax department. Our panel will provide you with the information you need to gain buy-in from your company leadership to invest in appropriate data management.

Listen as our panel prepares you to implement sound data management strategies through effective internal controls, improved accessibility of data, and streamlined processes to prepare returns or prepare for state audits.
