This webinar will guide tax professionals and advisers on nexus limitations and protections for service providers in light of the Wayfair decision. The panel will discuss key challenges stemming from the economic presence test, nexus standards under the due process clause and commerce clauses, interstate income taxation, P.L. 86-272, and nexus protections available to service providers.
In South Dakota v. Wayfair, the United States Supreme Court abrogated the physical presence substantial nexus standard, leading more and more states to enact statutes providing for economic nexus sales tax thresholds similar to South Dakota’s.
Sellers of intangible property and online services must consider the impact of such laws on their operations, as they may easily exceed the thresholds in many states. Consideration should include the taxability of what they sell and constitutional defenses available under Public Law 86-272, Commerce Clause, and Due Process Clause.
