BDO USA, LLP invites you and your colleagues to a complimentary CPE-qualified webinar discussing emerging state tax issues for retailers engaged in e-commerce.

Whether your online sales are generated via a marketplace seller, like Amazon, or from your own website, the tax issues can be numerous and complicated. This webinar will explore sales and use tax nexus and corporate income tax nexus principles for online retailers including the significance of the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision to hear South Dakota v. Wayfair, 17-494, and the emerging area of state income tax nexus where states are asserting that online sellers meeting certain economic thresholds have state income tax nexus (i.e., “factor presence test”).
After this webinar, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand the benefits and risks of being a third-party seller, from a tax perspective
  • Explain the significance of the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair set to be heard by SCOTUS
  • Understand how the factor presence test could impact them
Learning Objectives:
