To increase sales and use tax compliance on remote sales and mitigate budget deficits, several U.S. states are pursuing enactment of sales and use tax economic nexus bills, including imposing notice and reporting requirements on remote sellers or marketplace providers/facilitators. These bills are intended to enable states to collect sales or use taxes from as many remote sellers as possible and improve use tax remittance compliance by consumers.

It is of paramount importance that companies understand the currently enacted economic nexus legislation, be aware of which ones that are under legal challenge, and stay alert to future introduction of such legislation. Sales and use tax should no longer be put on the back burner as compliance challenges may start small but can become serious and costly.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of sales and use tax economic nexus and as they delve into an in-depth analysis of nexus bills recently enacted in various states. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical tips and strategies in ensuring compliance in a rapidly evolving digital economy.

Key topics include:

• Sales and Use Tax Economic Nexus – Overview
• Economic Nexus Tax Legislation
• Compliance Challenges
• Tips and Strategies to Ensure Compliance
• Sales & Use Tax Automation Implementation
• Outlook Beyond 2017
