What you need to know about the new US sales tax rules going into effect
2019 brought dramatic changes in US sales and use tax rules: 43 US states adopted economic nexus laws, requiring out-of-state sellers to collect sales tax, and 36 of those states also enforced marketplace facilitator laws. Businesses of all sizes have had to scramble to keep up with changing tax liabilities, and it’s not expected to slow down.
As 2020 nears, now’s the time to prepare for even more US sales tax changes to go into effect. Attend one (or both) of our upcoming US sales tax changes webinars to arm yourself with knowledge on the biggest sales tax changes that went into effect in 2019 and what changes you can expect in 2020.
