    Q&A Forum: Tax Experts Explain Supreme Court Decision on Nexus Scott Peterson, VP of Tax Policy & Government Affairs; Rachel Le Mieux, CPA, CMI, SALT Partner at Peterson Sullivan LLP Recorded: Oct 16 2018 58 mins
    The Supreme Court ruled in favor of South Dakota, granting the state authority to impose sales tax obligations on out-of-state transactions. Remotes sellers will have a new set of obligations and challenges ahead of them, while states could potentially gain billions in revenue. But what does it mean for your business?

    We brought in two leading tax policy experts to break down the ruling and explain:
    •Whether remote sellers need to file and register in more states
    •How the ruling affects future laws across other states
    •How to determine whether you’re on the hook for sales tax based on where you conduct business
    •Q&A from audience
