Per the Colorado State Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACI) – The case is based on a challenge to current law requiring companies to notify their customers of the state’s sales and use tax, and to report tax-related information to the Department of Revenue. In February, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the law which was passed in 2010 by the Colorado General Assembly.

My primary focus is on Colorado State and local sales and use tax issues and the associated challenges facing those doing business in Colorado. I defend clients against Colorado State, Denver and other home-rule cities’ sales and tax audits.

I also follow sales tax issues nationally, and apply my knowledge to help clients in whatever states they do business in. I enjoy helping clients save money, understand the issues and determine taxability. Clients get peace of mind through understanding their obligations, developing procedures to properly comply and resolving issues.

I work to defend clients against unfair audits and to reduce tax, penalty and interest assessments. I also works to simplify tax laws. I educate taxpayers on sales and use tax issues to prevent or minimize future difficulties.
