Sales Tax Changes: Mid-Year Update

In the world of sales tax, 2018 will be remembered as a big year for change. The Supreme Court upended the long-standing precedent that companies need physical presence in a state before they’re required to collect and remit sales tax. And nexus isn’t the only thing in flux as we enter the fiscal new year. Sales tax changes for marketplace sellers, new tax amnesty programs, and changes to tax on services are also making headlines.
