City Use Tax Webinar

A walkthrough of recording the extra tax


The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present “City Use Tax” on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at 10:00 AM CDT.

Over the past few months, I’ve heard from several companies about a recent letter from the City of Chicago auditing their material purchases back to 2009 – yes, seven (7) years! If you purchased materials from suburban material suppliers for a city job, you will want to be part of this webinar!

Using Chicago Use Tax as an example, we’ll walk through entering Accounts Payable records to record the extra tax, set it aside for future payment, use part numbers to capture info needed for reporting to the city, and more accurately reflect your job costs.

This webinar is presented by Catherine Wendt of Syscon who has 30 years of experience working with Contractors.

Mason contractors registered for Masonry Certification will receive 1.00 credits in the Ethics & Business Practices discipline upon completion of this course.

This webinar is free to all attendees. Register for “City Use Tax” at
