    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.

    Posted by Rachel Graves on Sep 12, 2018 12:47:50 PM

    Communication on a personal level can be just as difficult to excel as communication on an organizational level. Funneling the static mess of thoughts in your head through multiple filters, aiming for a succinct meaningful message and the right body language, all while trying to make it pitch perfect can be like aiming for a moving dartboard...blind folded. For some time, I’d become frustrated at how exhausting it was for me.
