Are you in compliance with Wayfair?

Are you in compliance with Wayfair?

The South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court decision held that states may require businesses to collect and remit sales tax even if the business has no in-state physical presence. Wayfair changed a remote seller’s considerations from “do I have physical presence” to “how do I comply with all the state and local jurisdictions where my products or services are delivered?”

The decision has broad impacts on states, e-commerce sellers, digital service providers, consumers, and buyers and sellers of businesses. Companies must understand how their products and services are taxed in all the states in which they are sold and create a system that tracks this activity. Now may be the time to consider sales tax automation software to help ensure compliance with state and local laws, and to more efficiently report and remit taxes.
