Nexus represents a physical connection between an out-of-state company and a particular taxing jurisdiction which makes the out-of-state company responsible for collecting and remitting sales tax on their transactions. Having a physical office or an employee based in a particular state is a clear-cut example of nexus. However, there are more subtle activities that could also trigger nexus that could represent risk to your business:
- Many states have concluded that VoIP providers utilize and benefit from existing telecommunications infrastructure which as a result creates nexus
- Sales reps traveling into another state where they are not based to solicit sales
- Employees attending trade shows
- An affiliate or agent relationship that supports selling or servicing activities
