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. And while the concept of “economic nexus” has been around for several years in the corporate income tax world, this concept now permeates and has broadened nearly all aspects of tax compliance. During this webinar we’ll discuss the significant overlap, as well as the stubborn distinctions, between nexus rules for income tax and sales tax purposes. And we will review key recent developments in multistate income and sales tax compliance.
