If you do business in more than one state, there’s a good chance you may owe taxes in another state. Instead of being issued a jeopardy assessment, it’s best to work with an experienced CPA and be proactive.
Watch the video below, or read on for more information:
Companies that operate outside of their home state may have a filing liability in that other state. If they have property or sales or payroll – which would be possibly workers in their home office in another state – you could be liable for a state income tax liability or a franchise tax liability.
There are sales tax issues as far as selling across state lines, including perhaps through the Internet. This is going to be a very hot button issue in regards to state filing requirements and registering in various states that are not home states.
Businesses should worry about registering and filing in other states because you don't want to receive a notice from that state. If a business receives a notice from a state that is not their home state, they generally get very anxious and worried about having a jeopardy assessment, which is a state's assessment of tax based on their idea of what you owe.
It’s best if we nip that in the bud and we can take care of it. It's very complicated and it's best to know what you're getting into before you get into it, because there's always preventative measures.
The professionals at Concannon Miller can help you assess whether you have a filing obligation in another state, as well as eliminating a possible jeopardy assessment by another state based on what they think you owe. At the end of the day, we want to make sure that our clients are protected and will not receive unwelcome notices or any notice for that fact that they would be unaware of.
