What is the next step after receiving an audit notice from the State? The answer is a Texas Sales Tax Redetermination Hearing. A Redermination hearing will afford a business owner the opportunity to contest the liability associated with their sales and/or use tax account with the State of Texas. It is important to note that this window will not be held open for an unlimited amount of time. Once the State has heard the case of a business owner, they will issue a determination. It is also important to note, that there is a timeline to file an objection with the state or to let the issue resolve with the State’s position.
The Texas Comptroller’s determination generally becomes final on the expiration of 30 days after the day on which the determination was served by personal service or by mail, unless a petition for redetermination is filed before the determination becomes final. See Tex. Tax. Code §§ 111.009, 151.505. An order or decision of the Texas Comptroller on a petition for redetermination becomes final 20 days after service on the petitioner of the notice of the order or decision. See id. at § 111.009. With the exception of jeopardy determinations discussed below, the amount of a determination becomes due and payable 10 days after it becomes final if no petition for redetermination is filed. See id. § 111.0081(a). If a petition for redetermination is filed, the amount is due and payable 20 days after the Texas Comptroller’s decision in the redetermination hearing becomes final. See id. § 111.0081(c).
“Great lawyer. Dealt with my problems thoroughly and promptly. Went to 2 other lawyers before him and neither understood sales and use tax audits. Experience matters and Mr. Ansari knew exactly how to handle my case and the department of revenue.”
“True to his word, Attorney Mansoor Ansari relieved me of a tremendous debt to the Internal Revenue Service. At our initial meeting he told me to "place my stress with them and enjoy my summer." Several months later, he informed me that my debt had been reduced to ZERO!! God bless you Attorney Ansari!”
“Mansoor took my case and updated me every week. He is very quick and very easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable with him and for the first time in a long time I can sleep at night. I don't have any IRS problems and my credit score went up.”
“This guy is like a tax encyclopedia and knew more than the auditors and the lawyers of 4 states.”
“Mr. Ansari is obviously an amazing attorney. He kept in great communication with me throughout the process. I can never thank him enough. i recommend his firm whole heatedly.”
