About

Nearly a year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s South Dakota v. Wayfair decision, nearly every state has begun requiring out-of-state retailers to collect and remit sales and use taxes. Their efforts to collect from online transactions will amount to an estimated $8-$23 Billion in new taxes across the United States this year alone. With thresholds as low as 200 transactions per year in some of the largest markets in the United States, just about every small and midsized retailers needs to figure out how to protect its business from non-compliance.

Join this webinar for an online panel discussion and expert insights about what retailers can do to navigate the new world of online State’s sales tax. Here are the some key issues they’ll address:

  • Understanding the unique challenges and rules that marketplace sellers face when selling on online marketplaces (and using their fulfillment services) such as Amazon, Walmart and Etsy
  • How to comply with California’s newly implemented sales tax law
  • What International sellers need to know in order to comply with the various states’ laws and regulations
  • How to stay abreast of the latest changes through tax technologies

Submit your questions during registration for the chance to have them answered during the webinar.
