Building a better way to get taxes right.

Dynamic Tax Solutions (DTS) is a company of experienced tax professionals with a strong culture of doing the right thing. Our founders have collectively more than 40 years of experience in sales and use tax accounting and auditing. Although the majority of their careers were spent working with the Big 4 accounting firms to conduct reverse audits and implement tax automation, they always believed reverse audits were reactionary, costly, and never really solved their clients’ purchase-side tax issues. They also noted that most companies continued to make big investments in tax automation that still generated over payments and under payments, which were both costly and risky to a business. They knew there had to be a better way to get taxes right.

DTS was founded in 2009 to finally create a tax solution that would fix this common tax problem. Our founders spent years analyzing the issues that were making it impossible for even the best and largest corporate tax teams to get their tax correct. The findings? Every company struggles with the same two challenges – the lack of proper visibility into the details that drive accurate tax decisions, and the lack of an efficient process to enable the sheer volume of transactions to be reviewed and corrected as necessary.

The solution? DTS built TaxView, a unique combination of smart technology and smart services, which overcomes these challenges.
