Our client is a manufacturer of industrial products and equipment.


Our client encountered various challenges that prompted them to seek DMA’s expertise and support. There was a notable timing discrepancy in their audit processes, with partnership audits concluding several months ahead of the consolidated parent’s final determination. This misalignment presented complexities in their overall tax management. The sequence of finalization was out of sync, with earlier tax years being concluded before addressing the later ones, resulting in intricate tax attribute tracking issues.

Adding to the complexity, numerous state and local returns required dual amendments, further intensifying their tax compliance efforts. Notably, the 2016 audit primarily revolved around changes related to the foreign tax credit, necessitating amended returns in specific states to address statute closure requirements.


DMA addressed these challenges by overseeing the filing and tracking of all federal changes spanning multiple years and cycles. In instances where tax returns required dual amendments to align with revised federal returns and the conclusion of federal audits, the DMA team utilized our streamlined internal Excel-based system. This approach not only upheld strict compliance standards but also optimized our client’s financial results. In addition, we were able to extend a discount to our client for the second filing, emphasizing our unwavering dedication to cost-effectiveness and operational efficiency.
