Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people have been telecommuting from their home state or from another location where they have decided to shelter in place. Allowing employees to telecommute from states in which they do not normally work can create a host of issues for multistate companies, but the two biggest tax issues relate to nexus and income apportionment. Will the presence of an employee working from home create taxable nexus for the employer in that state? How should the business apportion and allocate income between its home state and the state in which the remote employee provides his or her services? Is it possible that states could have contradictory rules, creating a double tax situations? (Spoiler alert: yes!).
