What My Clients Say
Sales Tax Audit And Consulting Testimonials
Initially we needed help when an auditor from another state we have operations in was being overly aggressive. Not only was Mr. Hanebutt able to decrease the assessment from the other state, he obtained a refund of overpaid sales taxes in Texas.
At first, I was skeptical. But with the ‘no risk’ policy, I figured there was nothing to lose. I was very surprised by the number of exemptions Steve was able to find on items we had initially paid sales tax on and shouldn’t have. Based on his work, we were able to get a very substantial refund. And after the refund was complete, he sat down and went over everything with us so that we didn’t overpay going forward.
I feel that Mr. Hanebutt handled the refund process very professionally. He walked me through the procedure and made certain that I was very comfortable with everything. He needed very little help from me or my staff. Then, we wound up getting a nice refund.
When the Texas state auditor came out, he hit us pretty hard with an assessment. But Steve was able to reduce the proposed assessment quite a bit, and I knew he wouldn’t be paid unless he produced.
