Description:

To meet the challenge of state and local sales and use tax compliance, tax staff must master the fundamental concepts, starting with the differences between sales and use taxes, and the distinction between the four types of sales taxes: seller privilege, consumer levy, transaction, and gross receipts.

The compliance challenges grow from there. Tax staff must understand how destination and origin sourcing of transactions work, grasp the differences between the Quill physical presence standard and different kinds of attributional nexus, and learn to cope with state variations in multi-state tax laws.

Tax staff should understand the impact of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement and typical state approaches to filing frequency, e-filing and e-payment, exemptions and certificates, and vendor compensation. Such fundamentals will enable tax staff to efficiently and accurately comply with state sales tax.

Listen as our panelists review and explain the most important multi-state sales and use tax compliance concepts.

Outline:

I. Essential concepts of sales tax

  • Sales tax vs. use tax
  • Four types of taxes (seller privilege, consumer levy, transaction, gross receipts)
  • Alternative vendor responses to sales taxes (shifting, absorption, separation)

II. Sourcing transactions

  • Meaning of destination-based vs. origin-based

III. Nexus

  • Quill physical presence standard
  • Trends in representational, click-through, online affiliate nexus

IV. Role of Streamlined Sales Tax Project

V. Sales tax exemptions and exemption certificates

VI. Revenue agency administration of sales tax

  • Filing frequency
  • E-filing
  • E-payment
  • Vendor compensation

Benefits:

The panel will enable you to take on these and other challenging questions:

  • When does sales tax apply to a transaction, and when is a transaction subject to use tax instead?
  • How do various states determine the sourcing of a sale, by origin or destination?
  • Which sales tax exemptions apply to a purchase or sale, and how should those exemptions be documented to withstand an audit?
  • How frequently must returns be filed in a state, and what method of payment must be used?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.

Upon completing this seminar, you will have an improved fundamental grounding in sales and use tax concepts that will prepare you for more effective compliance work in various states.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
