why do liquor establishments need my tabc liquor tax consulting services?

“Mixed Beverage TABC Liquor Tax Audits” are based on your purchases and not just your reported sales. The State estimates your sales using a program called “The Alcoholic Beverage Depletion Analysis” which converts your liquor, wine and beer purchases to estimated sales. They will then subtract your reported sales from the estimated sales to calculate an error rate which will be applied to all reported sales in the audit period. It is almost impossible to account for all purchases of liquor, wine and beer. Needless to say over 50% of taxpayers mixed beverage audits result in a tax due audit of tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional tax, penalty and interest. This is where my services come in. I will evaluate and test your business to make sure you are in compliance with all state record keeping requirements and insure your tax audit comes out the best possible. No one can match my over 30 years of experience with this tax, my 15 years as a TABC tax auditor, and, 13 years as a Comptroller liquor tax auditor, my 2000 plus audits conducted as an ex liquor tax auditor, and the results I’ve obtained, for clients, as listed on my website reference page. I am the best, bar none, and, will give you the best results.
