They do things a little differently down South…
If you currently do business or are planning to do business in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and/or Texas, you need to be aware of key sales tax issues and situations unique to 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 – and the heat isn’t the only thing that makes the Southern region special. For example, numerous Southern states have enacted remote seller nexus legislation in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic South Dakota v. Wayfair decision. And with Alabama and Louisiana, there are some additional challenges due to home rule authority. 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 Southern 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 Southern states, so you can avoid costly errors and stay in compliance.
In this 90-minute live webinar, sales tax expert Diane Yetter of the Sales Tax Institute will provide you with key sales and use tax information for twelve Southern states. She’ll cover important taxability and exemption issues, administrative items, sales and use tax rate information and more.
In addition, Diane will cover recent important legislative changes, the effect of South Dakota v. Wayfair in these states, significant recent court cases and other crucial sales tax updates.
