The Practical Implications of Selling into Multiple US States

By TaxConnex on Tue, Jul 07, 2020 @ 11:00 AM

If you don’t live in the United States (or even if you do), the laws surrounding US Sales Tax can be quite confusing. In fact, the United States has possibly the world’s most complex sales tax regime. This is because each state sets its own sales tax rules, and states often take widely varying approaches. As a result, every state has a different tax framework, with variations in regulation covering everything from tax liability and tax rates to exemption categories and reporting requirements. On top of this, local area tax jurisdictions also have powers over some aspects of taxation and can set different rules for their area.
