Gain a better understanding of the Virginia sales and use tax reporting requirements.

For companies headquartered in Virginia, that sell into Virginia, or with physical locations in Virginia, an understanding of a taxpayer’s responsibilities under the Virginia Sales and Use Tax Act is essential.
Each year, the Department of Taxation issues rulings and administrative guidance that can affect your business and reporting requirements. The Virginia General Assembly adds new statutes pertinent to the Commonwealth’s sales and use tax.
A Virginia attorney with over 30 years of Virginia sales and use tax experience will help you navigate through the law, regulations, lore and court decisions. He will lay out a conceptual approach to resolving Virginia sales and use tax problems, and will weave in the impact of related local business taxes.
You will get an overview of the major elements of compliance, the source of applicable laws, tips on how to deal with audits, with substantive topics organized by industry where possible.

  • You will be able to discuss sales and use tax procedures and compliance.
