Webcast Summary

Nearly a year since the U.S. Supreme Court's South Dakota v. Wayfair decision, most U.S. states have enacted, will enact, or have proposed legislation that requires out-of-state on-line sellers to collect and remit sales and use taxes. 

As more states establish or expand thresholds for economic nexus, companies that fail to keep up with the rapid pace of changes to sales and use tax regulations are at greater risk than ever of noncompliance, audits, and fines.

During this Webcast, we will discuss why finance leaders should and how they can apply automation to stay on top of the latest sales and use tax rules, including: 

  • What criteria U.S. states and taxing jurisdictions are using to define or broaden nexus,
  • What new risks finance leaders should be aware of, including risks that arise when companies introduce or expand the availability of subscription-based products and services, and
  • What technological advances finance leaders need to know about to equip their companies to comply not only with current but also with future sales and use tax regulations.
