Our founder spent the better part of the last decade with Peisner Johnson & Company, LLP a CPA firm that focuses exclusively on state taxes. While there, he became one of the country's leading authorities for state tax issues like nexus, drop shipping, eCommerce, and service providers. He assisted many other clients in many industries. He is a frequent speaker having been requested to speak at events all across the country and is often interviewed and quoted by major publications.

Services Offered

Nexus Services

We can help you determine where you may have nexus for sales tax, income tax, payroll tax, and Secretary of State filings. We have three levels of service; consultations, reviews and studies. Sometimes all your questions can be answered in a consultation and sometimes you may need a more formal detailed analysis. 


Once you know where you have nexus we can register you for any state or local tax including sales tax, income tax, payroll taxes, and Secretary of State filings. We also offer business licensing registration and compliance, registered agent representation, and annual report services. We can even help you form an entity. If we have not listed your registration need, ask us, chances are we can help.

Consulting & research

Taxability can be very different from state to state and can sometimes change quite rapidly. Many of our consulting and research agreements help companies determine if their products/services are taxable in the different states. We can answer many questions off the top of our head in a consultation, those we can't we can research.

Exposure Mitigation Services

Exposure mitigation is all about reducing your past tax, penalty and interest exposure either proactively through voluntary disclosure agreements (VDAs) and amnesties or reactively by providing audit defense. We offer services where we support you in the background or where you have us handle it all. We also perform due diligence reviews.

eCommerce Services

eCommerce is one of the most rapidly evolving areas of sales tax and will be for years to come. We are one of the foremost thought leaders in the field and can help you navigate this tumultuous sea of change. We have services for Amazon sellers as well as those selling on other platforms. We can help you determine where you should register to collect sales tax, perform registrations, do your returns and configure your platforms

International Sellers

International sellers, especially eCommerce sellers often have a unique set of challenges. US tax laws are very different from other countries. Nexus and taxability are common issues with many international sellers not realizing they could have exposure for both income and sales tax. We can help identify and solve these problems.

Drop Shipping and Exemption Certificates

We help purchasers and sellers understand the range of documentation that can be accepted or provided in each state that will protect the seller while providing the easiest path for purchaser to be compliant. We also review certificates on a case by case basis or provide exposure analysis for all of your certificate. We also provide exemption certificate management.

Sales tax Technology 

There are many good choices when it comes to sales tax technology. Each company has it strengths and weaknesses. How do you choose what is best for your situation. We can help. We are agnostic when it comes to platforms and can help guide you to making the right decision. Once you have made a choice we can help configure the tax settings. We can also help configure marketplaces, shopping carts and other platforms

We  file in Canada and we can accommodate foreign entities who do not have a US bank account.
