Economic NEXUS vs. Sales Tax NEXUS
Did you know....

....that more than 40 states will now apply some form of an economic presence test for income tax purposes by the end of 2021?

....that the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair. Inc., economic nexus can now be applied in determining whether a company has created a sales and/or income tax filing obligation.

Remember, economic nexus is solely based on a business having sales or otherwise deriving an economic benefit from activities within their borders, regardless of a physical presence. You are purposefully directing business towards my state, regardless of whether you have a physical presence or not”.

Learn about the range of approaches that different states take to tax corporations and issues to consider if a business expands into additional states. Learn about the taxing structures and how each different structure “triggers” nexus.

Learn the differences between nexus for:
  • Net Income Tax States (remember Public Law 86-272)
  • Non-net Income Tax States
  • Factor-based Nexus Standards
  • Economic–based Nexus Standards
Join us on Wednesday, October 20th and....

be better prepared to answer AND ask the tough questions like:
  • What does it mean for out-of-state sellers?
  • How or will this decision affect more than just sales tax nexus?
  • What does economic nexus mean for sales tax?
  • Does having a physical presence in a state still matter for sales tax?
  • Is the traditional nexus for sales tax still alive and well?
  • Do we need to begin filing in the 45 states that have a sales taxing system?
  • When to recommend to a client to file income/sales tax in that state?
