US Supreme Court Ruling in Wayfair: Increased Sales Tax Compliance Burdens on Businesses With Multi-State Operations

This event has already occurred. View Recording Download Slides

Event Overview

In arguably the most important sales tax case in the past twenty five years, the U.S. Supreme Court has announced its highly anticipated decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc.

The Court’s 5-4 decision in Wayfair ruled in favor of South Dakota and upheld the State’s requirement that certain retailers with no physical presence in South Dakota could be required to collect sales tax and held that South Dakota’s law was not a burden on interstate commerce. Initial implication is that other states will have to consider whether their laws (or soon to be proposed laws) will fall within the parameters of the Court’s decision.

Join us as we discuss the ruling and the administrative impact on almost all businesses with multi-state operations.

  • An overview of the case
  • Key takeaways from the decision
  • Review of other states with similar economic nexus standards
  • Thoughts on future state of remote sellers
