A better way to manage communications taxes

The rise of streaming services, IoT devices, and cloud computing has introduced a new set of communications services. And as a result, more states and local jurisdictions are collecting communications taxes on these technologies and enacting laws to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation. With communications tax, it can be challenging for companies to remain compliant and there is a perfect climate for the possibility of costly tax audits. But there are ways to protect your business from these risks.

In this webinar, we review:

  • The different types of communications taxes that you should know about
  • Why your company might be liable 
  • The common challenges associated with communications taxes  
  • The risks involved with communications taxes 
  • How Avalara AvaTax for Communications can help you manage communications taxes
