Why you need to assess your US sales tax risk more than ever!

Following the economic fallout of the global pandemic, governments are facing the highest budget deficits in a generation. Meanwhile, online cross-border sales continue to grow, increasingly making these a target for recouping lost revenue.

If you’re selling to customers in the United States, you're increasingly likely to trigger new sales tax obligations or “nexus”.

Given the number and complexity of sales tax jurisdictions in the US, it can be challenging for businesses to assess their sales tax liability and keep up with US remote seller thresholds.

Avalara's US Sales Tax Risk Assessment makes the whole process easier. Arrange an initial, no obligation, one-on-one consultation with an Avalara sales tax professional via the link below and we’ll be in touch at a time that suits you.

What is nexus?

Economic nexus

Economic nexus is a connection to a state based entirely on sales volume into that state. Businesses can have tax obligations by selling as little as $100,000, or by making 200 individual transactions. Thresholds vary by state and the requirements can be difficult to navigate.

Physical nexus

Physical presence in a state creates an obligation to register and remit sales tax to that state. Physical presence can include everything from having a retail storefront, renting or owning property, employing remote workers, even storing property in a fulfillment center or location owned by someone else. Physical presence is one of the first things state tax auditors look for during an audit when determining whether you have a tax obligation
