Additional Details About the U.S. Regional Sales Tax Roundup: The Southwest Webinar

If you currently do business or are planning to do business in Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, or Texas, you need to be aware of key sales tax issues and unique tax situations for those states.

Sales tax rules and legislation are constantly changing at the state level. It can be nearly impossible to keep up with every important law change or court ruling that is taking place.

Each region has its own challenges and critical updates. For example, Arizona, Colorado, and Louisiana are three of the home rule states for sales tax. This means that cities, counties, or other local governments that have the authority to administer and establish their own sales tax rates and rules. Home rule authority can create a major compliance headache for those making sales in these states as each jurisdiction may have its own rate, taxability rules, and filing rules.

Join the webinar to learn critical sales tax rules and quirks for Southwestern states. You’ll get caught up on significant sales tax updates and legislative changes – including post-Wayfair nexus legislation – that can have an effect on your company’s operations.

Avoid costly errors and stay in compliance by getting the sales tax specifics for eight Southwestern states in a single session.
