Food Service

From Back-to-back Cash Transactions, to the Industry’s Reputation for Unreported Income, Just Know that the CDFTA Has its Eyes on You.

Let’s face it—you are in the restaurant business and a sales tax audit is too big of a fish to fry in the midst of other pots that you have cooking on the stove. Unfortunately restaurants, bars, and other food service businesses are common targets for audits because of back-to-back cash transactions and the industry’s reputation for unreported income. So know that ever since your grand opening the CDFTA has had its eyes on you.

Were you recently selected for a sales tax audit? Do not take it lightly! Without a solid grasp on the many sales and use tax laws concerning sold foods, prepared foods and discounted meals, attempting to communicate with a hungry auditor who has no problem with coming in and gobbling up whatever profits that your business has worked so hard to make, could have you shutting off the lights and locking your doors much sooner then expected.

Whether you need us to demand a fair sales tax audit, or use our abilities to pursue a reduction of potential penalties already assessed, our food service industry sales tax specialists can protect you from getting badly burned.

Don’t face a sales tax audit alone. Sales Tax Specialists, Inc can handle the legwork of your audit so that you can run your restaurant without interruption.
