Quill Overturned: What Now for Sales and Use Tax Collection?

After more than 25 years, the U.S. Supreme Court has changed direction and ruled in Wayfair that businesses that sell to customers in other states must collect the sales taxes that would be due in that state. For internet sales, drop shipments, and other common transactions Quill no longer provides protection from being required to act as a tax collector for a state other than the business’s home state. What does this decision mean? Experienced state and local tax practitioner Tim Noonan, Esq., will provide that answer and others in this one-hour overview webinar on Wayfair and its impact. Your business and your clients have to start making plans now to deal with this decision. It is not something that can be dealt with overnight and there are questions regarding what states will do in the wake of this decision that overturns a landmark Supreme Court decision.
