It is the most crucial time for all types of retailers to get their sales tax obligations in order because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair. This seminal court case has far-reaching sales tax implications for retailers across every industry. And when we say retailer – we mean anyone who makes sales to the final consumer, not just traditional retailers.
When you factor in the sales tax obligations and special rules that retailers are responsible for, now is the perfect time to make sure you are staying sales tax compliant. A simple sales tax calculation mistake can make for very costly errors due to the particularly high amount of sales that retailers handle.
It is essential that you are not only properly collecting and remitting sales tax, but also correctly managing all of the other sales tax issues that are involved with retail sales.
