The New Rules of Nexus — What Online Sellers Need to Know
Nexus, that ephemeral concept through which businesses become obligated to collect and remit sales tax. For decades, the standard has been that only when a business has nexus — a sufficient contact with a state — does it have sales tax obligations. Now, states are increasingly looking to expand nexus in order to increase their revenue from sales tax. Gaining understanding of what nexus is and how it is being redefined is vital for all online sellers. Staying compliant with new state rules will be critical for an online seller’s future success and growth.
