How to Defend a Tobacco Tax Audit

Free Case Evaluation: (888) 918-4690

Many states aggressively target tobacco wholesalers to extract tax revenue from them on audit. States often fail to make taxpayers aware of new developments in the law or cases. The government simply cares more about trying to maximize tobacco tax revenue, whether they are rightfully entitled it or not. Dealing with an audit can often be time consuming and incredibly stressful. If you believe you are being treated unfairly or if you are wrongfully being assessed excessive tobacco tax, immediately call our office so that we can begin to assist you. We'll aggressively defend your business from the beginning.

If you need help with an audit, follow these 5 simple steps:

  1. Contact our firm at (888) 918-4690 for a free initial consultation.
  2. Provide us with information. Tobacco Tax Refund will need a copy of the audit report or a copy of the unlawful action made by the state. The audit report will show the incorrect tobacco tax being assessed along with the supporting transactions. Most states are allowed to go back anywhere from 2-4 years to audit you.
  3. Engagement & Power of Attorney. If we are able to help you, then we will discuss and email you a draft engagement contract for your review. Many states require a power of attorney form, which gives us permission to discuss your company's tobacco tax situation with tax authorities. Once the paperwork is received we begin our work and keep your money in your pocket.
  4. Preparing and filing paperwork. Tobacco Tax Refund will organize the requested paperwork and prepare the appropriate response. Once all of the documents are in order we file your tobacco tax protest letter for you.
  5. Get your tax removed. Following filing, we will be in touch with the state agency to make sure the contested tobacco tax claim is in order. After being resolved, the state will send you a letter showing your tobacco tax assessment has been removed.

Our services are provided on an hourly and contingency fee basis, depending on the details of your case.
