Why a Sales & Use Tax Discussion Now?
The Wayfair Act -
Before South Dakota v. Wayfair there was North Dakota v. Quill - This 1992 Supreme Court decision was the law of the land which determined that businesses must have a “physical presence” in a state to collect sales tax.
As the business landscape evolved and more and more businesses began using the Internet to sell their products and services, many states began challenging the Quill decision and South Dakota was most aggressive.
In June of 2018, the Supreme Court overturned the Quill decision based on the monumental case of South Dakota v. Wayfair.
This decision; know today as the "Wayfair Act", expanded the definition of nexus to include economic presence (not just a physical presence) as a determining factor in which businesses are liable to collect & remit sales & use tax.
The impact has proved to be staggering as states and local jurisdictions are rapidly enforcing new economic nexus guidelines; as of April 2019, 38 states have enacted economic nexus reporting.
Economic thresholds are defined by total gross revenues and/or number of transactions, with each jurisdiction having unique thresholds and there being over 11,000 taxing jurisdictions within the 50 states. There are more than 60,000 different tax rates among those jurisdictions.
With the ability to collect from online transactions, jurisdictions are estimated to collect an estimated $8-$23 billion in new tax revenues across the US.
Jurisdictions are hiring more auditors, Wisconsin Department of Revenue has hired 102 new auditors and increased their division by one-third, generating an estimate of $88 million in additional revenue. California has added 100 new auditors and will generate an estimate of $371 million in additional revenue each year.
