  • Multistate Taxes in a Post-Wayfair World: Update on Sales and Income Tax Nexus

June 17, 2020

Register Here

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair drastically changed the rules governing when a state could require an out-of-state business to comply with its sales tax laws. In response, nearly every state that imposes a general sales tax has enacted new rules to adopt and impose an “economic nexus” standard for sales tax compliance purposes. During this webinar we’ll discuss the overlap and distinctions between nexus rules for income tax and sales tax purposes, as well as recent developments in multistate income and sales tax compliance.

Speakers:
Christopher L. Doyle
Joseph N. Endres
Joshua K. Lawrence
