Course Description

Everything you need to know about sales tax in California, Texas, Florida, New York, and Illinois

Gone are the days of only having to worry about collecting sales tax where your business has a physical presence. The adoption of economic nexus laws over the past year and a half means your customers’ location now determines where you must collect and remit. 

With about one-third of the United States population residing in California, Texas, Florida, New York, and Illinois, collectively, there’s a good chance you have customers in at least one of those states. And you must understand each state’s specific sales tax rules to remain compliant. That’s why we’re dedicating this webinar to everything you need to know about collecting and remitting sales tax in each of these 5 most popular states.

Listen to sales tax expert Scott Newell explain:

  • The simple activities that can trigger nexus in each state, obligating your business collect and remit sales tax

  • New sales tax laws that have gone into effect in each state, including an overview of economic nexus thresholds

  • The varying filing schedules for each state so your business doesn’t fall behind

  • Answers to your own questions

If your business sells into California, Texas, Florida, New York, or Illinois, this is a can’t-miss webinar.
