Course Description

Find out if holiday sales changed your sales tax requirements

For many retailers, the majority of sales come in the fourth quarter, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday being key revenue drivers. As encouraging as these increased sales can be, they may trigger additional sales tax obligations for sellers, and it’s not always easy to determine if or when you’re on the hook.

The 2019 holiday season was the first in which nearly every state required sellers to charge sales tax on online purchases over a certain threshold. That means you must not only understand the state-by-state limits (as well as other important laws), but also closely monitor your sales activities so you don’t fall out of compliance.

Listen in to our upcoming webinar on to learn more about how holiday sales can trigger new sales tax obligations for your business. We’ll discuss:

  • 7 common holiday sales activities and their impact on sales tax requirements

  • When selling into new states (or countries) obligates you to collect sales tax

  • How the sales tax burden shifts if you sell via online marketplaces (Amazon, Etsy, etc.)

  • Tips to monitor your sales activities so you can keep up with changes

The holidays may be over, but now’s the time to reflect on your past activities to determine if collecting sales tax is in your future. Attend our webinar to find out how.
