We discuss how the local sales and use tax rules apply. We’ll cover the Wayfair case, economic nexus, and Texas' efforts to implement small business threshholds. We’ll also cover taxable services with particular emphasis on the more common ones. We’ll address issues arising in various industries including real estate construction, oil and gas, and internet.

The course discusses exemptions, including those for manufacturing, gas and electricity, agriculture, export sales, and exempt organizations. We’ll cover issues arising in business formation, foreclosures, leases, and rentals. Finally, we’ll review strategies for handling audits, including steps to take before, during, and after the audit.
