2021 sales tax changes
A must-attend event for anyone who deals with sales and use tax
The business world encountered a myriad of sales and use tax changes throughout 2020, both in response to and on top of COVID-19. Despite these changes, one thing remains the same: the expectation, on the part of state and local jurisdictions, that businesses will stay on top of – and compliant with – relevant changes to sales and use tax regulations.
This was no easy task in 2020. As more consumers turned to online shopping, many businesses realigned their focus to ecommerce, triggering new tax obligations. In addition, state and local governments throughout the U.S. cracked down on remote seller tax compliance, increased tax rates, and introduced new taxes on digital advertising and remote employees – all in an effort to offset budget deficits. To get tax compliance right in 2021, businesses must prepare now for potentially more sales tax changes this year.
