Robert Dumas, TaxConnex Founding Partner, will be a featured panelist in Law Seminars International upcoming teleconference focused on the tax and regulatory consequences of cloud-based services including SaaS and hosted VoIP. Other panelists include Allison Rule and Jonathan Marashlian of The CommLaw Group.
“While state taxing statutes have traditionally failed to keep pace with technological developments, a number of states have their eyes on potential revenue that can be tapped by taxing cloud-based services. Cloud-based providers need to not only recognize that the paradigm is shifting; they need to prepare for it,” describes Robert Dumas, Founder and Managing Partner at TaxConnex.
Participants should expect the following topics will be covered:
- What you need to know about the different “nexus” standards and why some cloud-based services are taxed and others are not
• Recent governmental and judicial decisions and how they affect the landscape
- How adding a “Communications” component to a cloud-based computing solution changes the equation
- Strategies for compliance:
- What are the basics?
- How is risk measured?
- Steps you can take to minimize risk and mitigate exposure in an evolving tax and regulatory environment
The teleconference is scheduled for January 16th at 1 pm EST. Click here for registration details.
