The Practice

Southwest Sales Tax Solutions, LLC was founded in 2009 as a niche practice focusing on taxes administered by the state of Nevada, and neighboring states. The practice was founded with the understanding that state taxes, such as sales and use tax, personal property tax, and similar taxes administered at the state level is a niche area in the world of taxation that is traditionally underserved by CPA firms, and other tax professionals.
