Texas fuel tax audit
As an owner of a gas station in the Houston area, you are most likely consumed with running your business at a profit versus keeping in track of the sales tax that you remit on a monthly basis. Of course, you are trying to make sure that your employees get paid, you are trying to maintain your costly business permits, and trying to take something back home to the wife and kids. The Texas Comptroller heavily scrutinizes gas station owners for underpayment of sales tax related to Sales and Use Tax on Qualified Motor Fuel and Diesel Motor Fuel. Collecting sales tax and remitting a lower amount to the State is tax fraud.
You might be dealing with pre-paid sales tax or inside sales of your convenience store merchandise. Gas station tax audits are the core of all of our sales tax audits in Houston. Call our office for representation.
