Course Description

Course Description

The sales tax system in the U.S. is anything but simple. With 45 states (and Washington, D.C.), over 10,000 sales tax rates, and a whole lot of variability, it can be tough for retailers to make sense of U.S. sales tax.  

Sales & use tax is a quagmire for many multistate businesses, as the rules governing the tax base and exemptions vary significantly amongst states. The task of identifying states in which sales and use tax compliance is required and how to apply each state’s tax may seem daunting, but it’s not impossible. The exposure faced by those who are unable to comply can be severe.

This online CPE webinar will help businesses navigate those sales & use tax complexities, focusing on what business purchases are subject to tax and how to maximize potential exemptions. This online CPE course will also explain why U.S. sales tax is so complex, and helps you demystify it. Attendees will learn about common sales tax exemptions for manufacturing businesses and the resale of tangible personal property. Further, as states struggle to meet tax revenue demands, more and more services are becoming subject to tax, especially services sold to businesses.

  • To discuss Sales & Use Tax background.
  • To discuss rules of exemption certificate.
  • To become aware of state-specific rules.
  • To list out common exemptions.
