Hot Issues in Multi-State & Internet Sales Tax

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Miles Hutchinson


Webinar Description

Each year, states lose between $8 and $34 billion in sales tax revenue due to the history of rulings against states attempting to tax businesses without a physical presence in the state selling to that state’s residents.  That is, the states want to change the definition of nexus from physical presence to economic nexus.


On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Wayfair, Inc. v. North Dakota, that, in the granddaddy of all nexus cases, the 1967 National Bellas Hess case, the Court got it wrong.  In so doing, they opened the door for states to force out-of-state sellers with no physical presence in their state to register, collect and remit sales tax simply because they have customers in their states. Join us to gain valuable insight into the complex issues of interstate sales and the obligations of out-of-state (foreign) sellers to collect the destination state’s taxes in light of this new ruling.


States are excited.  They finally have an opportunity to collect the revenue they so desperately need.  Billions of dollars of internet sales occur annually without tax.  The states now have the opportunity to collect all of it from the retailers.  In just 90 minutes, learn the different ways your company triggers nexus on itself and what it must do to comply with state regulations.


Will I owe taxes in more than one state for the same sale?  Must I charge tax on my internet sales?  Will the states force all sellers to comply or will they extend an exception for smaller businesses who do not have the resources to comply with the burden of multi-state tax filings? Why is my drop shipper charging me tax? Learn how nexus works under Wayfair and the risks of not registering. Take the best corrective action when you discover you are out of compliance.
