Do you sell goods or services across state lines? We help sellers deal with complicated sales tax compliance burdens and risk.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair approved the economic threshold standard for sales and use tax nexus. Many states now impose nexus for sales and use tax collection for remote sellers that meet state thresholds for sales or number of transactions.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s Wayfair decision and more retail sales online have led to increased sales tax compliance burdens and greater risk.
This interactive map shows which states have implemented economic nexus thresholds due to the Wayfair decision and the effective dates.
A national e-commerce retailer had a sales tax collection responsibility in nearly every state but was collecting taxes only in their home state.
The CSH Sales Tax team identified and resolved over $1 million in liability, saving the client $160,000 in penalties. CSH also assumed control of the compliance process, relieving the client of the need to hire additional personnel and invest in expensive sales tax software.
A large brick and mortar retailer with over 125 stores, currently operating in six states, wants to start selling products online. Sales tax returns are prepared internally, but the company knows that they don’t have the expertise in-house to handle the influx of additional state returns that would be required. The company turned to CSH to outsource their sales tax compliance, saving them significant time and resources.
A large financial service provider subscribed to a well-known sales and use tax software to calculate sales tax on customer invoices. The software provider indicated to the company it had nexus in over 40 states, but was only filing sales tax returns in four states. On the brink of filing 39 voluntary disclosure statements, the company turned to CSH’s sales tax team. We completed a taxability study and determined their services were taxable in only 13 additional states, saving the company a tremendous headache and significant money.
