By Robert Dumas on Thu, Aug 17, 2023 @ 11:32 AM

Three C’s of Sales Tax Compliance

By Robert Dumas on Thu, Jul 27, 2023 @ 12:16 PM

Sales tax is meant to be a pass-through tax and thus one that should have minimal impact on a company’s bottom line. The sales tax is collected by businesses and “passed-through” to the taxing jurisdictions. Of course, there is cost associated with managing this compliance obligation; however, the costs of not managing the compliance process are significantly greater. If you fail to collect and remit the applicable sales tax when you have an obligation, under audit a jurisdiction will assess the tax due + a penalty + interest. This then becomes a bottom line hit unless you can recoup from your customers.

By Robert Dumas on Thu, Jul 20, 2023 @ 11:24 AM

States ease nexus thresholds

By Robert Dumas on Tue, Jun 20, 2023 @ 11:13 AM

Almost five years ago, the Supreme Court’s Wayfair decision was heralded as a revenue gateway for almost all states to require remote sellers to collect and remit sales tax. Thresholds were established, filing forms and deadlines fixed and one by one states waited for the money to roll in (with Florida and Missouri among the latest of the 45, with Alaska perhaps soon to join them).

10 steps to manage your sales tax obligations

By Robert Dumas on Thu, May 25, 2023 @ 11:54 AM

Sales tax is complex for businesses of all sizes. If you are a business with customers in multiple states, your scope and risk grows in accordance with the number of states and the sales tax complexities in those states. Sales tax obligations begin with whether you have nexus in a state or other locality. Nexus today largely stems from two main factors – a physical presence or economic presence. Once nexus has been established you must determine if your products/services are taxable. If you have nexus AND your products/services are taxable, then you likely need to register and comply.

On top of this, some local area tax jurisdictions also have powers over some aspects of taxation and can set different rules for their area.

The importance of Documenting Your Sales Tax Compliance Process

By Brian Greer on Wed, Mar 01, 2023 @ 11:00 AM

Sales tax compliance is riddled with risk. Failure to comply with the applicable sales tax rules can have a devastating effect on a business, but they’re often overlooked because they’re considered “pass-through” as the business is responsible for collecting the applicable taxes which pass through the business and are subsequently turned over or paid to the states. While these pass-through taxes are not meant to create a financial burden on a business, failure to comply can create significant risk, and managing the obligations can be a burden to the team that has to manage them.
