Course Description

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify what an economic nexus is and how to determine when you’ve triggered it in a state

  • Determine how economic nexus laws have changed over the last two years

  • Identify key considerations for your business to more efficiently manage sales tax in light of an economic nexus

  • Recognize live answers to your questions

Even if you don’t have specific questions, join the webinar to learn from others who are experiencing the same challenges you are.
