On June 21, 2018, the Supreme Court’s ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. drastically changed the way businesses are required to manage sales tax. It enabled states to tax retailers that have economic activity but no physical presence in a state (economic nexus).
Fast forward two years. All but two of the 45 states with a general sales tax have adopted economic nexus laws, leaving many businesses with sales tax obligations in multiple states. But thresholds vary by state and continue to change, making compliance anything but simple.
If you’re struggling to understand economic nexus laws and your business’s obligations, don’t miss this webinar. This session will break down the complexities of economic nexus, review the latest threshold updates, and reveal what changes you can expect next. We’ll devote the last half of the webinar to answering your questions live.
