GAME CHANGER: Sales Tax Reform

What you think you know about sales tax, may have changed with the recent Supreme Court decision in Wayfair. States are now permitted to collect sales tax from out-of-state sellers with no physical presence in their state including remote sellers, online retailers, phone order retailers and inbound (foreign) companies. Many states are announcing new economic nexus standards which expand their reach to taxing out of state sellers. Staying informed as we navigate state sales tax reform is more important than ever.

State and local tax rules are continuously changing – making it difficult for businesses to stay in compliance and up-to-date on changes affecting their tax liabilities and responsibilities. Additionally, the recent Wayfair ruling from the Supreme Court will impact many out-of-state sellers including internet retailers. This session will cover what you need to know regarding various state and local tax rules and discuss how the new SCOTUS ruling will require businesses with customers outside their home states to immediately review their sales tax collection practices.

Learning Objectives:
 - Review important recent tax law changes, including the Wayfair Supreme Court ruling
 - Outline how aggressive state expansions of sales tax collection requirements create filing requirements and risks for businesses working across state lines
 - Define nexus and discuss its impacts
