    Summary

    California, New York, Texas, and Washington D.C. have recently adopted economic nexus thresholds for sales and use tax collection purposes. California and D.C. adopted South Dakota’s thresholds, which were the subject of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v Wayfair, decided on June 21, 2018. Texas promulgated a rule requiring remote sellers to collect sales tax, unless the remote seller meets Texas’s safe harbor exemption. And, most recently, New York indicated that it would begin enforcing a rule that has been on its books since 1989.

    Manufacturers Aren't Immune From Wayfair's Sales Tax Impact

    Posted by Kari Brooke on Oct 24, 2018 10:44:38 AM

    Background on South Dakota vs. Wayfair

    Earlier this summer, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the landmark case South Dakota vs. Wayfair that the "physical presence test" for determining if a seller is required to administer sales taxes is “incorrect.” States may now legally require sellers to administer sales taxes, even if the seller has no in-state physical presence.

    The case is a momentous development in the debate over the digital economy’s responsibility for the collection of sales tax. As companies increasingly conduct business across state lines, how states and the federal government craft tax legislation that addresses the evolving definition of “nexus” significantly impacts all taxpayers—including manufacturers.

    While many states offer manufacturers generous sales tax exemptions on certain equipment and machinery purchases, the industry is now faced with new sales/use tax rules that impact both purchase and sale transactions. The Wayfair decision has important business implications manufacturers can’t afford to ignore—lest they wind up with a hefty tax bill they didn’t plan for.
