US tax experts explain Supreme Court decision on Nexus

The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled in favour of South Dakota in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. Is it possible that their decision could put an end to “tax-free” shopping for good? Out-of-state retailers might now have a new set of obligations and challenges ahead of them, while states could potentially gain billions in revenue from taxing out-of-state sellers on their online sales. But what does it mean for your business?

We’re bringing in two leading tax policy experts Scott Peterson and Rachel Le Mieux, CPA, CMI to breakdown the ruling and explain:

  • Whether remote sellers need to file and register in more states
  • How the ruling affects future laws across other states
  • How to determine whether you’re on the hook for sales tax based on where you conduct business
  • Live Q&A from audience
