Business Trends: Colorado Sales Tax Reform

Course Description
Sales tax reform is changing the tax landscape in many states and Colorado is no exception. The Colorado Department of Revenue has issued emergency regulations that radically change the sourcing rules for sales tax purposes. These regulations were effective starting December 1, 2018. Additionally, Colorado has a far more complicated sales and use tax structure than most states. This webinar will discuss the new regulations, the various combinations of sales tax rates across Colorado and what you need to do to stay in compliance and handle multiple filing requirements.

Learning Objectives
- Review common state and local taxes for Colorado
- Review important recent tax law changes, including the Wayfair Supreme Court ruling
- Identify where you may need to collect sales tax
- Discuss how aggressive state expansions of sales tax collection requirements are creating filing requirements and risks for businesses working across jurisdictions and state lines
