Additional Details About Future of 4 Most Influential Sales Tax Accountants Roundtable Webinar

Following the rollercoaster of state budgets in 2020 and 2021, the 2022 legislative session addressed a number of sales tax policy proposals that have shaken up the sales tax landscape for businesses across the board.  In addition, the inflation and related impact on state budgets and fears of reduced spending coupled with higher costs contributed to some interesting “solutions” offered by the states ranging from new and unusual holidays in Florida to gas tax freezes in a number of states.

In this roundtable discussion, four sales tax experts will examine how the most significant sales tax issues of 2022 will play into policy initiatives and state revenue recovery tactics in 2023. Their analysis will include a 2023 legislative update that covers current legislative proposals, what is expected to stick, and the pros and cons of various proposals for businesses.

Beyond the impact of new legislation, each expert will share major sales tax issues facing taxpayers today – from audits to technology to the continued impact of Wayfair – and outline strategies to mitigate the challenges for your business.

Here is a sample of the topics that will be covered:

  • The viability of home rule state remote seller legislation in light of impending legal challenges
  • Digitization of all aspects of tax administration including invoicing, compliance and audits which took a big step due to the pandemic
  • The small, but potentially growing, movement of governors wanting to eliminate their income tax by increasing reliance on sales tax
  • Business interests to bring uniformity in state economic nexus requirements and whether there is any hope for any changes
  • Digital advertising taxes, including passed and proposed legislation

Each of the webinar panelists is a CPA or attorney, a sales tax practitioner, or an insider in the sales tax technology space. This provides four well-rounded perspectives to get you thinking about proactive steps you can take to keep your company compliant in 2023 and beyond.

Join the webinar to learn how to prepare for sales tax law changes on the horizon and how to shift your company’s strategies to manage sales tax more efficiently and effectively.
