Representation In Sales And Use Tax Matters
Companies are required by law to collect and pay over sales tax on all taxable sales and services— records and calculations must be correct. Businesses are often subject to audit of sales and use taxes, and the financial consequences of improper records and calculations can be devastating.

Each of these businesses carries with it unique legal and business requirements. Our attorneys work diligently to help clients avoid severe interest and penalties for unpaid taxes.

Experienced Attorneys Protecting Our Clients’ Interests
As experienced lawyers, we know that it is essential that you have the proper information available should you be audited. The DRS may make detrimental assumptions about your business, including how much in sales tax you should pay and how soon you should pay if it discovers violations. This may result in higher assessments than are actually owed. It is no secret that state governments are seeking to resolve budget deficits by aggressively pursuing tax violations, and Connecticut is no different.
The DRS also has reciprocal agreements with numerous states. These agreements enable Connecticut to get information on purchases subject to use tax and to share information with other states. We counsel clients on reporting taxable purchases in Connecticut, using exemption certificates and proper record keeping, as well as out-of-state purchases.
At the Baker Law Firm, P.C., we understand and support the diverse needs of each client and remain solidly committed to improving the communities in which we live. We are a small business-oriented law firm focusing on personal, business and financial matters for individuals and their companies. We are dedicated to helping these businesses achieve success by providing them with comprehensive legal counsel.
