For the most efficient and effective response to audits, companies often call on Curtis Blakely & Co., P.C., CPAs. From offering advisory support, to handling the entire audit, to communicating with the auditor on questionable items, we have the experience and expertise to assist with audits of all types conducted by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. In addition, not every product or service is subject to sales or use tax. We can review your accounts payable transactions to determine if tax has been overpaid. If overpayments are discovered, we can assist with the filing of claims with the appropriate entity.

Curtis Blakely & Co., P.C., CPAs has extensive experience in the area of telecommunications. We can assist you with the burden of compliance with the various taxes, surcharges and assessments for which a carrier acts as a collector. We are knowledgeable about the various tax structures for Texas and other states and can review the USOC [Uniform Service Order Code] set up in the billing system to determine if the customer?s bills are being properly assessed the various taxes, surcharges, and assessments.

There are only a few telephone companies that have the manpower to deal with the myriad of complexities of telecommunications taxes, which are far more difficult than what most corporations have to face. It's critical to be complete and accurate about the various taxes and fees because the penalties for failure to properly collect them can be severe on a number of levels. If an audit by the comptroller determines that a Company is negligent with regard to tax collection, the state can force the company to pay the taxes and fees--and may assess interest and penalties--or force it to collect the back taxes and fees from its customers. That could result in an unbudgeted debt or a very unhappy subscriber base that may jump to a competing carrier.


Our fees for assistance with sales tax services are competitively priced and vary based on the degree of time and difficulty.
