  • Enhance the awareness of businesses on the consequences of tax evasion
  • Identify themselves and show identification
  • Verify the need for and existence of a seller's permit and other required fee permits and licenses
  • Review license/permit to verify that it is updated with correct information
  • Determine if the business is reporting its sales and using taxes properly
  • Provide information and assistance to the business owner on sales and tax reporting responsibilities 
  • Answer owner's questions
