Slope Stabilization: Best Practices and Challenges

Slope Stabilization: Best Practices and Challenges

Are you up to speed on the current internet transaction tax law? Gain a better understanding of your sales and use obligations. With growing budget deficits, many states are taking increasingly aggressive positions in an attempt to impose sales and use tax obligations on internet transactions. Internet sellers face a murky and sometimes ill-defined landscape with respect to sales and use taxes that are impacted by both state law and federal constitutional principles. By exploring the growing body of judicial decisions, this topic will help you better understand your sales and use tax obligations and ensure compliance. It will explain the constitutional requirements that must be satisfied in order for a state to impose sales or use tax obligations. We will examine the critical substantial nexus requirement and clarify the contours of that requirement through a discussion of existing and developing case law. This topic will explore how you can, without careful planning and analysis, establish nexus through either related or unrelated third parties.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss the due process clause and the modern commerce clause.
  • You will be able to review Amazon® laws, affiliate nexus and increased reporting requirements.
  • You will be able to explain federal legislation affecting internet sales tax collection and nexus.
