Sales tax compliance can be a nightmare, but it doesn't have to be. Just knowing some of the fundamental rules will clear up what many businesses struggle with every month.
Sales tax expert Scott Peterson will explain how the simplest of activities can create nexus in other states, the tax implications between 'bill to' and 'ship to', why collecting exemption certificates is an auditor's red flag, and more.
"Another solid Webinar by Avalara; Scott explained the Tax Detail in a very understandable manner."
