Have you become laser focused on whether your company has exceeded economic nexus thresholds across the states post-Wayfair? Have you been counting transactions and deciphering what sales count in the threshold calculation? Is that all you are evaluating? You might be overlooking the elephant in the room! Don’t forget that physical presence is still the first consideration in determining nexus!
The #1 misconception about sales tax following the South Dakota v. Wayfair decision is that physical nexus has faded away and no longer applies. This is simply not the case. States continue to apply the physical presence test for nexus. Although some states have repealed their quasi-physical remote seller provisions (click through and affiliate), some haven’t – and those that did were not repealed retroactively.
Physical presence is typically established in a state through people or property. Are you aware of all the activities your company is engaging in across the states?
This webinar will help you pinpoint all the activities that create physical nexus within a state so you can evaluate your sales tax obligations and mitigate your audit risk.

In sales tax, there is an important order in nexus determination.
If your company has a physical presence in a state, the post-Wayfair economic nexus thresholds are not relevant since you are deemed to have nexus based on your physical presence. Every state with a sales tax uses a form of the physical presence test to determine if you need to collect and remit sales tax.
The core elements of physical nexus are people and property. You need to understand all the aspects of your company’s business – from manufacturing to sales to distribution – in order to monitor which activities are creating nexus. Do you have traveling salespeople? What about inventory in a third-party warehouse? Do you attend trade shows?
This webinar will help you ask the right questions to determine if your company has physical nexus with a state. You’ll understand how to decipher the different states’ rules and learn about the corrective actions you can take if you have nexus.
In this 90-minute live webinar, sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute will teach you what you need to know about physical nexus rules across the states. You’ll learn the most common nexus-creating activities so you can stay on top of your sales tax obligations. Diane will share practical advice to track nexus exposure and explain what you need to do if you have nexus.
