Course Description

The sales and use tax landscape is shifting dramatically, and with it the tax collection responsibility for online sales, in the wake of the landmark Supreme Court sales tax decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. With the bright line test of physical presence now expanded, states are free to implement sales tax collection laws and rules based on the much broader standard of economic presence, and they are rushing to put laws and regulations in place expanding their taxing authority.
We get updates almost daily on new rules and thresholds from various states.  Accounting professionals are challenged to understand the impact to their client’s businesses.
Join Judy Vorndran with this monthly update as she shares the latest developments and provides expert analysis on what the changes means, and what needs to be done to adapt sales tax compliance in this new world. 

Audience questions are encouraged as Judy discusses relevant points:

  • Unintended consequences and idiosyncrasies in Wayfair

  • Where states stand

  • Issues to watch for (will Congress act, states holding retailers accountable, more complicated reporting)

  • Impact on multi-jurisdictional sellers, domestic and international

  • Developments in:

  • Marketplace vendor rules

  • Collection and registration requirements

  • Use tax notice and reporting requirements

  • General compliance

  • State and local enforcement initiatives that may require additional tax planning

  • Technology updates

Learn how the Supreme Court’s ruling impacts the eCommerce sales tax compliance process, best practices for dealing with nexus state-by-state, and what you need to worry about.
