What Causes Overpayment?

Our experience dictates that 99 percent of restaurants overpay sales and use taxes.

Overpayments are a result of a variety of reasons:

  • Unfamiliarity with state tax laws
  • Changes in tax laws
  • Employee turnover
  • Failure to file detailed exemption certificates with your vendors
  • Company growth or downsizing
  • Changes in products you purchase from your vendors
  • New or one-time use of a vendor
  • Continuously switching vendors
  • Natural disasters
