This webinar will explain states' tactics for raising revenues by asserting nexus claims against multistate businesses. Our panel of SALT experts will discuss how specific states (including New York, California, and Texas) target interstate businesses and assess state income tax liability and how tax practitioners should respond to these challenges.


States are looking for ways to raise money, and asserting nexus claims is a successful means. Recently, California targeted out-of-state sellers with sales in their state exceeding $500,000 or 25 percent of total sales. Paying compensation of $50,000 or more or housing business inventory in the state can subject taxpayers to reporting obligations as well.

Most recently, Texas adopted an economic threshold of $500,000 for establishing nexus and requiring businesses without a physical presence to remit tax if sales in the state meet or exceed this amount. Multistate companies need to monitor state requirements to ensure they are not subject to penalties and interest. Tax practitioners need to understand how best to assist these businesses and represent them for upcoming state nexus challenges.

Listen as our panel of SALT experts discusses current nexus requirements, best practices when settling a state dispute, and how to successfully manage audits of multistate businesses.
