may affect yourbusiness. I can help.


South Dakota v. Wayfair

The US Supreme Court's June 21, 2018 decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair ruled that states can require remote sellers to collect sales taxes even if they do not have a physical presence in the state through a concept called "economic nexus."

State Legislatures Act

State legislatures have already begun implementing new laws to piggypack on to South Dakota's law that was at issue in the Wayfair case. New economic nexus laws vary by state.

Sales & Transaction Thresholds

Many states are requiring remote sellers to collect sales tax if they transact $100,000 in sales or 200 separate transactions in that state.

Online Retailers Affected

Online retailers are directly affected, but any remote seller into a state is subject to the impact of Wayfair.

Small Business Impact

Wayfair will hit small businesses hard who now will have to track and collect taxes from potentially multiple states and monitor multiple states economic nexus laws.
