Death and Taxes.  Yes, you heard me death and taxes. My parents always told me those are the only two things that are guaranteed in life. As individuals, when getting that dreaded tax notice in the mail we panic! 

Now, imagine your business gets one or even 1,000 tax or compliance notices from the feds, state, local, or any one of numerous agencies around the world.  Don’t panic yet!

My guest has a solution for you. Rick Pinkerman, CEO of NoticeNinja, a SaaS-based CRM for tax notice compliance is here with me today to talk about converting his existing enterprise software to a SaaS model for tax notice management to ensure your tax and compliance notices are not the death of your business.
