Statistical Sampling for Sales and Use Tax Audits

This course is the first step to understanding and applying statistical sampling techniques. Appropriate use of sampling techniques contributes to reduced audit cost, reduced travel cost, more accurate audit results, and makes audits more defensible if challenged by taxpayers.

To provide participants with

1) the skills necessary to conduct a statistical sample; and, more importantly
2) an understanding of basic statistical sampling theory as it relates to sales and use tax audits.

When the course is completed the auditor should be able to apply the basic principles and conduct a statistical sample.  However, this course should be viewed as the first step, and not the final step, in obtaining a thorough understanding of statistical sampling.
