Live webinar — Sales tax 101 for software, SaaS, and digital goods providers

Thursday, September 23, 2021

11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET

60 minutes, including Q&A


How to streamline compliance in an ever-changing landscape

How, when, where, and why software and digital goods are taxed is the perfect storm of complexity and contradiction, making compliance near impossible to comprehend, never mind master. Definitions of what is and isn’t taxable vary by state, as do tax rates and rules. It’s no wonder, then, that software and digital goods providers often fail to prioritize compliance.

Taxability of software has come under great scrutiny with the sharp rise of digital products and services over the last year. States are now implementing new legislation that makes more software and digital goods taxable, and not knowing the latest rules can put you at risk of non-compliance. Join our upcoming webinar to learn the basics of software taxability and how your business can streamline compliance once and for all.

In just 60 minutes, our software tax experts will cover:

  • Which states have laws taxing digital goods/services
  • How nexus laws exacerbate tax complexity
  • The tax risk software and SaaS companies can incur
  • Why manual tax management is inefficient, and automation is crucial
