Sales, Use Tax Recovery Seminar for manufacturers

FLINT — The Michigan Small Business Development Center regional office located in Flint will be hosting a Sales & Use Tax Recovery Information Seminar on October 6th, 1:00-4:00pm at Kettering University in the Campus Center, Room A.

Presented in partnership with National Auditing Services, this seminar is designed for businesses (primarily manufacturers) to learn how they can recapture dollars lost by overpaying sales & use taxes. Many companies lack the resources to optimize their tax bills and may have significantly overpaid their Sales and Use taxes.

National Auditing Services specializes in an auditing procedure known as Reverse Sales and Use Tax Recovery. For more than 20 years, National Auditing Services has helped hundreds of companies across the United States recover overpaid taxes related to their manufacturing operations. Their on-site audit process is quick and efficient and does not require staff downtime. National Auditing Services assume all responsibility for filing all refund claims, including any follow-up correspondence.

Online registration is required separately for each individual attending (seating is limited) but the seminar is available at no cost through MI-SBDC I-69 Trade Corridor Region sponsorship. MI-SBDC is a statewide organization funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the SBA, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and through local host support.
