Pepsi Bottling Ventures

We were very impressed with Ira Zlatkin’s breadth of knowledge and extensive experience with manufacturing operations in regard to the application of sales tax law. Pepsi was very pleased that Ira recovered sales tax incorrectly paid and eliminated sales tax going forward associated with two of our plants.
Most importantly, Ira undertook a very important request for a Private Letter Ruling, which will positively impact the profitability of our company. He interacted with the relevant governmental authorities to successfully obtain a Ruling, which will save Pepsi substantial dollars moving forward.
In conclusion, Ira’s work provided our company with a valuable analysis of our Sales Tax situation and will bring long term benefits to Pepsi and its shareholders.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ira for the outstanding work accomplished with respect to our Sales Tax obligations at our USA Division. We have received payment for the refund claim submitted to the State of Minnesota.

Topnotch Resort and Spa

I want to thank Ira for a thorough review of our hotel’s Sales and Use Tax procedures. He worked tirelessly and meticulously on all aspects of the review including interacting with certain vendors that, at the end, were obligated to remit back to Topnotch certain taxes paid to them. Moreover, at the time Ira agreed to perform the review, we were undergoing a State Audit. We engaged Ira to perform a Defense Audit, and as such, through Ira’s expertise including his direct involvement with the State Auditors, we were able to greatly reduce amounts that the State deemed we owed.
I highly recommend Ira’s unique services to any company looking to improve their bottom line.

We will continue to look to Ira as a resource for sales tax recovery opportunities.
