This webinar will walk state and local tax professionals through the sales tax registration process. Our panel of seasoned SALT veterans will identify initial caveats that come with registering a business for sales tax, explain the registration process in particular states, and offer suggestions for maintaining a sales tax compliant business.


The initial step in sales tax compliance is registering for sales tax. Although the process itself may appear simple, there are preliminary considerations that should not be ignored. Registration can lead to exposure for prior unreported and unremitted sales, use, local, and income taxes. Additionally, once registered, a business must be ready to comply with the state's reporting and remittance process or suffer the consequences.

The nexus requirements and registration requirements vary by state. Registration in some states is not required if sales occur exclusively through marketplace platforms. Many states allow electronic registration, while others require paper registration. Separate registration for local taxes might be needed in home rule states. Once registered, sales tax status should be monitored and reviewed for compliance dates, nexus, and responsible party changes. SALT professionals working with state and local taxes need to recognize the ramifications of the sales tax registration process.

Listen as our panel of SALT leaders explains the preliminary and ongoing considerations of sales tax registration.
