Compliance Services

Are You Compliant?

We offer several services that fall under the umbrella of compliance. These are usually labor intensive, tedious, time-consuming activities that must be performed to keep you out of trouble. We have met very few individuals who actually enjoy these repetitive activities.

Keeping up with the wide range of state and local tax issues relating to filings, rates, taxability, exemption certificates, licenses, registrations, nexus, and other issues can be a burden. These necessary tasks often put strains on resources as well as employees which could be better utilized elsewhere.

Our compliance services are designed to provide you with the flexibility you require to decide how to utilize your resources in the most efficient manner. We provide a wide range of solutions from total outsourcing to process improvement and everything in between. These solutions will help you avert overpayments, manage costs, reduce audit risk, and make your life simpler.

Case Study

The Situation: A Large Advertising Company was spending 80 hours a month with considerable mistakes and headaches compiling, collating, and manually filling out numerous state and local tax returns. As a result a lot of projects were falling behind.

The PJCo Result: With PJCo's proprietary software system the headaches were relieved and mistakes eliminated. Eighty hours of manpower is now used more productively on other strategic tax functions and returns are processed perfectly and punctually every month at a tremendous savings.

Quote: "Too much time on such necessary but mundane tasks impaired our ability to complete needed tax planning and other accounting needs. Peisner Johnson provided the workable solution that relieved us from the headache of dealing with all the returns, mistakes and questions, not to mention the savings. Impressive technology and people."


The Situation: A Communications Company was so busy that getting the state and local sales tax returns was almost always left to the last minute and seemingly always-required Herculean efforts. They were swamped with a myriad of issues, sales tax being only one of them. As a result, no one person was relegated to such mundane but necessary and timely work. Because of a lack of urgency and understanding, many mistakes and late filings resulted in missed deadlines, which meant costly penalties.

The PJCo Result: We were able to take the data and produce completed returns in all local and state jurisdictions completed on time with no mistakes. With our software and our expertise we used their system to extract data efficiently so that returns could be prepared perfectly every time and on time. PJCo eliminated all penalties & interest and taxes were now paid on time.

Quote: "If not for you we could not have done it. Peisner Johnson & Company took care of this tremendous burden and provided an excellent solution. Peisner Johnson & Company went one step further and coordinated our efforts for a smooth streamlined system for gathering the necessary data that provided us with a greater understanding of our business."


The Situation: A golf course management company was growing and adding locations faster than they could keep up with.

The PJCo Result: When PJCo took over the filing of state and local sales tax returns, we handled all the problems and correspondence from all the jurisdictions, which was a daily occurrence. PJCo fixed the problems by providing returns on time, which eliminated all problem correspondence, penalties, and interest.

Quote: "While other companies tried they couldn't get a handle on our systems and problems. Our accountants were swamped and couldn't get the returns done on time. Thanks Peisner Johnson."
