Resolved a NYS Sales and Use Tax Audit for Large Wine Store and Banquet Facility

Hodgson Russ attorneys were brought in to resolve a NYS sales and use tax audit that wasn’t going well for the client, a large wine store and banquet center operator in Manhattan. The taxpayer also had a unique facility where it taught classes about wine and spirits and paired them with certain foods and meals. The state was contesting whether the taxpayer paid the proper amount of sales tax on both its purchases and sales. They were able to get the liability down to a nominal amount.
