Economic nexus is a sales tax obligation that’s triggered when a remote seller with no physical presence in a state meets or exceeds a certain number of sales or monetary amount in that state (also known as your economic nexus threshold).

Use our state-by-state guide to economic nexus to learn how it works in your state, and how it might impact your business.

When you trigger economic nexus, either by reaching a certain number of transactions or a specific dollar amount, you’ll be required to pay sales tax to the jurisdiction where you have nexus.

You may need to file in multiple states depending on where you have sales and have triggered nexus. Returns for Small Business can help you identify where you’ve reached nexus and help you automate preparation and filing for your sales tax returns.
