COST 2022 Sales Tax Conference & Audit Session

Overview


Mary Kay Martire spoke at the COST 2022 Sales Tax Conference & Audit Session on the topic “You’ve Been Served: Ways to Defend Against Consumer Class Actions and False Claims Actions”. During this session the panelists discussed how the past decade has given rise to a cottage industry of plaintiffs’ lawyers challenging transactional tax collection under state consumer protection laws. Additionally, some jurisdictions allow false claim actions (qui tam) for transactional taxes. These lawsuits are limited only by the creativity of plaintiffs’ lawyers and, to date, have targeted vendors in a broad range of industries including retail, food service, hospitality, telecom, and software.
