Sales & Use Tax 


How Can I Minimize Risk and Maximize My Peace of Mind?

What is Sales and Use Tax?

Sales tax is imposed by many state and local jurisdictions on purchases of taxable products and services in their areas. Sellers who have Nexus in these locations collect the tax from customers and remit it to jurisdictions.

Use tax is remitted to the state by a buyer of taxable items when the buyer purchases a taxable product in the state and the seller did not collect and remit sales tax.

It is no secret that Nexus is complicated. There are a multitude of considerations to observe including your sales tax obligations, regulatory requirements, and the vast changes to the way buyers are buying and how sellers are selling. Each transaction and business strategy is unique.
