If you currently do business or are planning to do business in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming, 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. Plus, each state has its own challenges and quirks to learn surrounding the essentials like taxability rules, exemption certificates, rates, and more. It’s a lot to get your arms around to say the least!

This webinar is here to help you avoid costly errors and stay in compliance by getting the sales tax specifics and critical updates for nine Western U.S. states in a single session.

For example, we will delve into the complicated world of Washington B&O tax, the uniqueness of the Hawaii Gross Receipts tax, and what to do with the no-sales tax states Alaska (for now!), Montana, and Oregon. You’ll also 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.
