Total Tax Compliance Through Smart Implementation

by Shylo Bisnett, on April 8, 2021 at 3:18 PM

Recently, our client, Quincy, Illinois, rolled out new a new hotel tax, as well as a food-and-beverage tax. To make it as easy as possible for the city’s restaurateurs, publicans and hoteliers to get compliant, Quincy added Localgov’s tax and fee administration platform. 

Almost immediately, Quincy achieved total compliance on its hotel tax. Within 60 days, it had reached 94% compliance on its food-and-beverage tax.

Here’s how:

  • Advanced communication: Quincy’s team tapped the media to discuss the changes.
  • Pre-tax outreach: Our team of local-government experts reached out to Quincy taxpayers directly. We also offered a virtual training about how to use Localgov.
  • Follow up: For those business taxpayers with questions, or those who failed to remit by the deadline, the Localgov Concierge Customer Service team reached out, answered questions, and helped business become compliant.


Take a look at our updated case study to get Quincy’s full story.
