What is nexus and why does it matter?

Figure out which type of nexus you have

Economic nexus

Economic nexus is a connection to a state based entirely on sales volume into the state. Businesses can have tax obligations by selling as little as $100,000 or making 200 individual transactions. Thresholds vary by state and the requirements can be difficult to navigate.
 

Understand economic activity and economic nexus

Physical nexus

Physical presence in a state creates an obligation to register and remit sales tax to that state. Physical presence can include everything from having a retail storefront, renting or owning property, employing remote workers, even storing property in a fulfillment center or location owned by someone else. Physical presence is one of the first things state tax auditors look for during an audit when determining whether you have a tax obligation.
