Sales Tax Nexus has always been a challenging topic for businesses as it’s different for every tax type and license requirement.
Monsey, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Business Licenses, LLC, the leading end-to-end governmental business license compliance company in the U.S., is proud to announce that Doug Starr, VP of Sales & Marketing, will be speaking and presenting at TeleStrategies Communications Taxation 2013 and the 2013 Annual ACT Conference. Robert Dumas from TaxConnex, LLC, will join Doug in discussing sales tax nexus and business license nexus challenges.
Nexus for various tax types is a confusing matter. The rules regarding sales tax and business license nexus might have the most overlap and the most confusion. The presentation, “Sales Tax and Business License Nexus – Unwinding Complex Rules”, will include thorough discussion of the following topics:
- How the rules for sales tax and licensing nexus differ from state to state
- How your method of selling and delivering your service impacts both sales tax and licensing nexus
- How the failure to collect sales tax where required will transfer the financial obligation from the customer to the retailer
- How Gross Receipts Tax jurisdictions can raise the stakes in determining licensing nexus
- The risk of not registering or licensing properly and ideas for mitigating that risk
“Sales Tax Nexus has always been a challenging topic for businesses as it’s different for every tax type and license requirement. Even though there tends to be overlap between sales tax nexus and the requirement for business licenses, there’s still confusion for telecommunications providers,” states Doug Starr, VP of Sales & Marketing, Business Licenses, LLC.
Robert Dumas of TaxConnex adds, “We see an increasing number of businesses struggle with the concept of nexus for transaction tax purposes. The questions we most often hear include, ‘I only have one physical office and I provide a VoIP service.’ ‘How could I possibly have nexus in these states?’, ‘Does nexus for telecommunications purposes mean I also have to collect sales tax on the sale of handsets?’ We’ll address those questions during the presentation.”
The session at TeleStrategies Communications Taxation will be held on Thursday, May 23rd at 9:15am. The session at the Annual ACT Conference will be held on Monday, May 20th at 1:30pm.
