[Webinars, 11/15 and 11/16] Dealing with the (sometimes) taxable and collecting online tax



Date: Thursday, November 16, 2017

Start Time:12:00 PM MST

Tax exempt or taxable? It all depends on the situation.

Just when you thought you had a handle on the rules for taxing goods and services, you come face to face with the new compliance bully on the block: “sometimes taxable.” Your clients must correctly deal with these sometimes exempt and sometimes subject-to-sales-tax products and services all the time in their business. Knowing when tax applies to “sometimes taxable” goods and services is essential to successful tax compliance – but it’s not always so easy to figure out.

That’s why we’re bringing in SALT expert and CPA Judy Vorndran to explain why these (and many other) factors often determine whether you should charge sales tax:

  • Your method of delivery
  • The types of products you sell (books, shoes, food, sporting goods, etc.)
  • The states your selling into
  • Whether you’re selling to business or consumers

This is one event you can't afford to miss!
