Attend the webinar: The state of Wayfair: Economic nexus two years later

How sales tax obligations for remote sellers have changed over the last two years

On June 21, 2018, the Supreme Court’s ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. drastically changed the way businesses are required manage sales tax. It enabled states to tax retailers that have economic activity but no physical presence in a state (economic nexus).

Fast forward two years, and all but two of the 45 states with a general sales tax have adopted economic nexus laws, leaving many businesses with sales tax obligations in multiple states. But thresholds vary by state and continue to change, making compliance anything but simple.

If you’re struggling to understand economic nexus laws and your business’s obligations, this webinar is for you! Our VP of U.S. Tax Policy will break down the complexities of economic nexus, review the latest threshold updates, and reveal what other changes you can expect next. We’ll also devote the last 30 minutes of the webinar to answering your questions live.

You’ll learn:

  • What economic nexus is and how to determine when you’ve triggered it in a state
  • How economic nexus laws have changed over the last two years
  • Considerations for your business to more efficiently manage sales tax in light of economic nexus
