This webinar will provide sales and use tax advisers and compliance professionals with a thorough and practical guide to overcoming state digital tax laws, collections, and reporting challenges. The panel will discuss recent state tax rules on digital goods and services, advertising and the influence of the Multistate Tax Commission, Streamline Sales Tax and global digital taxation developments. The panel will also discuss sourcing challenges to determine tax liability and identify nuances in managing sales and use tax collection and reporting regime.
Post-Wayfair, certain jurisdictions have imposed new taxes on digital goods and services, including advertising, IT-platforms, cloud computing, and other data services. Tax advisers must grasp a complete understanding of evolving state tax laws to effectively manage their state tax footprint.
In addition to handling state sales and use tax challenges–such as separating state sales tax on invoices, sourcing transactions and nexus–tax advisers must now grapple with states over new items and revenues in their sales tax base.
Recently, Maryland became the first state to enact a tax on digital advertising, which imposes a tax on the gross revenues derived from digital advertising services, with multiple states considering similar tax rules and nexus standards. The panel will provide updates on challenges Maryland is having enforcing this tax, including delayed enforcement.
Other states, such as Colorado, have revamped their sales and use tax system to include taxing digital goods and services. States with home rule cities also create increased complexity for taxpayers. Tax staff should understand the impact of these state and local tax law developments, approaches to filing, exemptions, and other key challenges in maintaining sales and use tax compliance.
Listen as our panel discusses recent state tax law developments, nexus standards, and key concepts with digital taxation in a multistate context.
