President and Chief Digital Officer,
Everyone has heard the saying about doing things right vs doing the right things. Being really good at doing something that doesn’t matter, doesn’t really have much benefit. But the lesson is not about making a choice; it’s about understanding the two “rights” and doing both to be more productive.
Some sales tax concepts for the leasing industry are simple; others are more complicated. Brian Greer, Partner and CRO at TaxConnex, gives some context to the more complex terms and offers advice on managing tax obligations.
