Learn about the taxing structures as well as how each different structure triggers nexus and the effects of South Dakota versus Wayfair.

As we approach the last quarter of 2020, the trend of states continuing to pursue aggressive apportionment policies will continue. This trend indicates that more than 40 states will now apply some form of an economic presence test for income and franchise tax purposes by the end of 2020; and with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair. Inc., economic nexus can now be applied in determining whether a company has created a sales tax filing obligation. Learn about the range of approaches that different states take to tax corporations and issues to consider if a business expands into additional states. Learn about the taxing structures and how each different structure triggers nexus. On June 21, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of the State of South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc.
