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.

Wayfair decision on June 21, 2018. And we’ll talk about the Washington B&O tax, the uniqueness of the Hawaii Gross Receipts tax and the fact that you can’t forget about Alaska, Montana or Oregon!  These legislative changes can have a huge impact on anyone making sales into these states.

You will learn critical sales tax rules and quirks for West Coast states along with significant sales tax updates and legislative changes – including nexus legislation – that can have an effect on your company’s operations. Make sure you understand sales tax for Western states, so you can avoid costly errors and stay in compliance.
