State and Local Tax Manager - Indirect Tax Operations

For companies with substantial sales or purchasing volumes, making accurate taxability decisions around each transaction is important to manage indirect tax costs. However, making these decisions is not always easy. The processes and systems that support indirect tax reporting cut across not just tax, but other functions within the organization. As a result, the indirect tax function is inherently decentralized, leading to inefficient processes, inaccurate data and, perhaps more significantly, excess costs.

Addressing these issues is critical in today's regulatory environment as companies are forced to shift their focus from tax compliance to tax accounting. Companies need indirect tax processes and supporting systems that provide real-time access to transactional data across functions to make accurate, timely, well-informed tax decisions to avoid over/underpayment of indirect taxes.
