Course Description

Get your own sales tax questions answered by our leading tax policy expert.

The Supreme Court’s 2018 ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. dramatically changed sales tax collection obligations for businesses, especially remote sellers. Now more than one year later, 43 states have adopted economic nexus laws, requiring businesses that exceed a certain number of transactions or sales into a state to collect sales tax there. But not all economic nexus laws are equal. Thresholds vary by state, making compliance more complex than ever.  

If you’re struggling to understand economic nexus laws and the impact on your business, this is your opportunity to have your questions answered by Avalara’s VP of U.S. Tax Policy, Scott Peterson.

The webinar will include:


  • An overview of South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. and economic nexus laws

  • Live answers to your questions

  • Considerations for your business to more efficiently manage sales tax
