Nexus–the level of connection your business has with a taxing jurisdiction–is the most critical concept in sales tax. Without nexus, a taxing jurisdiction cannot impose its sales taxes on you.
Since the momentous 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court decision that permitted states to impose economic nexus, companies of all sizes and industries have grappled with the ongoing attention and maintenance managing sales tax nexus requires.
Not keeping up with how changes in state rules or changes in your own business impact your nexus obligations expose you to more risk should an audit arise.
This webinar will share how the Wayfair decision changed the sales tax landscape for businesses and how its impacts are still felt today. We will address the practical questions and issues that come up in real business scenarios with nexus management so you can confidently track changes and stay compliant. Guest instructor, Jamie Szal, an attorney that worked on the Wayfair case, will provide special insight!

The U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair was a game changer for essentially any business making sales and the impact of the decision is ongoing for states and businesses alike.
States continue to fine tune previously passed nexus legislation and rules, especially in light of the interplay between economic nexus, marketplace nexus (or marketplace facilitator rules), and physical nexus. Modifications to economic nexus thresholds, rules about including/excluding marketplace sales, and new implications for where you have inventory are just a few of the changes that have popped up post-Wayfair for multistate sellers to deal with.
The strategies and systems you have in place to manage sales tax must be able to handle continual change in the sales tax landscape and changes in your business. This is especially important as states are getting more aggressive in their enforcement of nexus laws through audits. You cannot assume that you can fly under the radar any longer.
This webinar will provide a full nexus update and share the most critical aspects of your business you should be monitoring to stay compliant. Guest instructor, Jamie Szal of Brann & Isaacson, an attorney who worked on the Wayfair case, will also give you a behind the scenes view of the case, remind you of the scope and what the case actually said, and share some of the biggest challenges companies are facing today as a result.
This 90-minute live webinar is taught by sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute and SALT attorney Jamie Szal of Brann & Isaacson. They will share a four years of Wayfair retrospective to help you understand current requirements as well as dig into the practical issues and questions businesses run into with economic nexus. Diane and Jamie will explain nexus trends across the states and how to develop an ongoing maintenance strategy to keep your company current and compliant.
During the live Q&A portion of the webinar, you can get answers to your specific sales tax questions directly from Diane and Jamie.
