Rentals and leases can be a tricky subject when it comes to sales tax. It’s easy to get tripped up when the sales tax treatment of rentals and leases vary from state to state. But understanding the different ways that they can be taxed is important in knowing how these transactions should be treated so mistakes aren’t made.

For anyone who deals with rentals and leases as either the lessor or the lessee, being able to identify the different situations that can arise and knowing how to treat them for sales and use tax purposes is essential.

Who Should Attend? This webinar is intended for financial and operations personnel—including tax, general accounting, accounts payable, sales, tax technology, purchasing and credit—who deal with sales and use tax as part of their responsibilities. The course is also designed for general practitioners, with minimal to no experience.
