Course Description

Your business makes a purchase and you notice the seller doesn’t collect sales tax. So it must be tax-free, right? Wrong. Consumer use tax may still apply, and if you’re not actively tracking use tax obligations, you could be making a costly mistake.  

Put simply, use tax is owed on a purchase when the seller does not collect sales tax, or when the use of the product/service (or the location of consumption) results in more tax being owed. Sound complicated? It is, and that’s what makes use tax one of the most mismanaged compliance issues for businesses.

Learning Objectives:
Join Avalara’s use tax expert Will Rau as he reveals:


  • The events that can trigger consumer use tax requirements

  • The most common consumer use tax management challenges

  • The impact of economic nexus laws on consumer use tax

  • How your business can step up compliance to avoid being audited


This will be one ‘use-ful’ webinar that you won’t want to miss.
