The Fool Proof Guide to Sales Tax on Services

Date: Wednesday, September 9, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Over the last decade, more and more states are legislating that businesses charge sales tax on more and more services. With the dramatic increase of the sales of services over tangible goods, cash strapped states are looking for more and more creative ways to get their share of the revenue. Knowing which states have taken the approach of taxing more services is important to understand, and a major topic of this webinar.

Knowing what gets taxed and what goes tax free is half the battle. Avalara’s Director of Government Affairs, Scott Peterson, will break down the new rules and demystify an issue that many companies struggle with.
After attending this event you will be able to:
List the different ways that states tax services
Recognize states' definition of services tax and the categories that are most often taxed
Recognize recent update on the states that have increased their tax bases
