Let`s start by ending the potential audit liability of an unlicensed company that, over the past seven years, should have collected and transferred $10,000 in VAT per year. If the Texas Comptroller`s review liability is retained by Texas Comptroller, it could amount to $119,000 ($70,000 in VAT, $7,000 in regular penalties, $35,000 in fraud and about $7,000 in interest). In voluntary disclosure agreements, most states will allow a company to estimate its past commitments, which will simplify the process. With a few exceptions, Excel calendars for calculating tax liabilities are accepted instead of filing all previous VAT returns. States are prepared to make these concessions to facilitate the process, as the main objective of states is to promote voluntary compliance with future and ongoing tax collection and reporting obligations. In short, the state is prepared to forego some formal revenues and even some to curb new taxpayers. As with all sales and usage tax investigations and consultations, the determination of the tax liability must take into account the specifics of each particular case.

Most applications are 2 to 3 pages long and require an explanation of the applicant`s type of activity, state activity and reasons for the application. Now, let`s break down the potential liability if the Texas tax group managed the VDA process on behalf of the company before conducting an audit. The total liability of the VDA would be $40,000 (10ts and revenue taxes per year, no interest, no penalty and a period of 4 years). As a result, total potential liability will be reduced from US$119,000 (retrospective to 7 years plus penalty and interest) to $40,000 (four years of retrospective and no fine and interest) if the VDA has been accepted.
