What our clients say

” As a small company in business for 40 years, we’ve been dealing with sales tax in the state where our office and factory are located. But talking to others at trade shows and listening to Judy, I realized there is the probability that there may be additional state sales tax and possibly income tax liabilities because of nexus. We started trying to figure this out on our own. Then we hired Judy and her team to make sure we are moving in the right direction and doing what we need to do to get us to the point where we can talk to other states and become compliant. Judy helped us select a sales tax software to use that is a good fit for our company going forward. And with Judy’s help, we’ve focused in on states, have communicated with customers, and are doing what we need to do to get compliant. When you have a good guide, the journey isn’t as arduous. “
