Sales and Use Tax Compliance:
Highs and Lows from the Tax Pros
Wakefield Research Uncovers What Companies Know
About Sales and Use Tax
As lawmakers change tax rules, many accounting and finance pros are in the dark. Leading research firm Wakefield Research investigates why sales and use tax compliance is so complex and difficult to get right.
This report draws upon a 2017 survey, which investigated what leading and emerging companies in the U.S. know (and don’t know) about sales tax compliance.

More importantly, it looks at what accounting and finance professionals in the trenches are doing to keep up with the ever-changing tax rules and maintain accurate accounting processes to safeguard their business from potential audits.

This report covers:
  • The average cost of a sales and use tax audit
  • The most common ways companies trigger nexus (the obligation to file and remit) in many states
  • The average number of people companies hire to manage tax compliance
  • The average number of hours companies spend on the compliance process
