Sales and Use Tax: Back to the Basics, Documentation and Practice
An afternoon meeting at Adelphia’s in Deptford, with a networking hour afterwards with appetizers and drinks. We will have accountants from Cowen Gunteski to speak about the complications specific to the Construction Industry. Capital Improvements vs Tax Exempt, proper documentation from the property owner or general contractor. Are Safety Items tax exempt? What about equipment repairs? Landscaping? Issue the correct forms to your vendors to ensure your company does not pay sales tax it doesn’t have to. Differentiate between “Consumed on the Job” and “Used on the Job”. We will also address a few issues with crossing state lines for our multi-state contractors. If you buy stone in NJ and use it on a PA project, do you owe use tax in PA? Bring your questions and real world situations, as well as your accounting staff. Registration is at 3:30, seminar begins at 4:00 pm.
