Mapping a path forward after Wayfair
By Deborah K. Rood, CPA
Why is the Wayfair case important?
The U.S. Supreme Court in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., 138 S. Ct. 2080 (2018), eliminated the physical presence requirement for states to require businesses to collect and remit state sales tax. It established economic nexus as the sales tax nexus standard. CPAs may face professional liability claims if clients fail to collect and remit state sales tax properly.
