“Attorney Matthew Schaefer has been advising my company on state and local tax matters since 2012. We have come to rely on Matt as an extension of our Tax Department. We regularly consult with Matt regarding a variety of sales and use tax issues, including direct mail, taxability, exemptions, sourcing, audit defense, acquisition issues, resolution of historic liabilities (through voluntary disclosure agreements, voluntary compliance initiatives or otherwise) and any other state or local tax matter that arises within the Tax Department. Matt was instrumental in bringing my company in compliance with sales/use taxes and continues to advise us to ensure we remain in compliance with the ever changing sales and use tax landscape. Matt has educated my company in terms of Wayfair requirements and continues to ensure that we are aware of ongoing developments in the Wayfair arena as they develop.
Matt has the unique ability to digest and analyze complicated legal requirements and then simplify and explain them to both tax professionals and non-tax professionals alike. He doesn’t merely regurgitate the law, but instead provides practical solutions to problems that my company faces. Matt’s advice contemplates the limitations my company may have in terms of data or technology as well as considering the various viewpoints of the stakeholders at my company. The result is comprehensive, meaningful advice that I am comfortable either presenting to the Executive team myself or bringing Matt in to communicate directly. Matt is our most trusted and reliable tax advisor. He is professional, yet personable, and is truly one of the most genuine people you can expect to meet.”
