California Sales & Use Tax Consulting Kent McLellan
About this pro
I offer California sales and use tax consulting. I am a former Board of Equalization senior tax auditor. I am also an audit defense specialist.
- What types of customers have you worked with?It is not what I would most like it to be and that is, proactive and preventative consulting services. What I do most is audit defense i.e., saving sometimes fairly small businesses from tax liabilities exceeding $100,000.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Defending the defenseless from the Board of Equalization. Once proud to work as a professional for the BOE they no longer have my respect. I now am defending pro bono, (i.e., free of charge) a businessman that would have been destroyed by an incompetent and arrogant BOE.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Do not hire just any CPA or Attorney get someone with lots of Sales Tax experience, as most do not have it.
