South Dakota v. Wayfair is the most important sales tax court case in decades. The case – and the impact of the court’s decision – is so significant that it made its way all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which issued its historic decision on June 21, 2018.

Why is it so important? South Dakota v. Wayfair addresses sales tax questions that have been plaguing state and federal governments for years. The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision affects how nexus applies to remote sellers, such as internet retailers and online marketplace sellers. But it also applies to any business that sells to customers remotely – without visiting them for any reason.  The previous standard for determining nexus didn’t account for these types of sales and the recent decision has overturned it, which means big changes are in store for remote sellers.

In this webinar, Diane Yetter will walk you through the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, explaining the case’s impact and the implications for sellers throughout the United States. If you make online sales, remote sales of any kind or sell into multiple states, this webinar will provide you with essential information on the path forward regarding nexus.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is essential for remote sellers including online sellers, online marketplace sellers, and sellers making sales into multiple states.

Financial and operations personnel who deal with sales and use tax as part of their responsibilities will also greatly benefit from the course materials. General practitioners, with minimal to no experience all the way to highly experienced pros are appropriate for this course.

Additional Details About the Webinar

About the Webinar

If you are a remote seller, make sales online or make sales into multiple states, you need to know about the South Dakota v. Wayfair decision. Your business operations could be greatly impacted. States have been enacting nexus legislation in anticipation of a U.S. Supreme Court decision for several years now, and the Court’s decision has provided some clarification on how states and remote sellers need to act moving forward. But it also raises some very important questions.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision is just the beginning. Now that a decision has been issued, businesses need to handle the fall out and adjust their operations accordingly. This webinar will point you in the right direction, like having a tax consultation that could cost you 3, 5, or even 10 times as much.

In addition to what is happening right now, you’ll learn about the history of South Dakota v. Wayfair, examine remote seller nexus legislation that has been enacted across the states, and discover what we expect will happen with remote seller nexus moving forward.
