The US Supreme Court recently overruled the long-standing “physical presence rule” that barred states from imposing sales tax collection requirements on certain out-of-state sellers. However, in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., the Court did not clearly state a new standard to replace the physical presence rule. States are responding to the decision in different ways. This Bottom Line videocast, Eversheds Sutherland attorneys Todd Lard and Jessica Eisenmenger discuss:

  • the US Supreme Court’s decision in Wayfair
  • the ambiguity of the new nexus standard
  • three approaches to nexus that states are taking in the wake of the Wayfair decision

Consumption-based taxes are spreading worldwide, and multinational businesses need to be aware of the global indirect tax landscape. Governments are looking for ways to react to and manage the disruptive effect of new and emerging business models, and they are using technology to collect, analyze and share taxpayer data.

In the new Bottom Line videocast, Eversheds Sutherland (US) Partner Maria Todorova and Eversheds Sutherland (International) Partner Giles Salmond discuss:

  • why taxpayers need to be aware of the global indirect tax landscape
  • impact of the Wayfair decision on indirect taxes
  • why indirect taxes are important if you supply digitized services

The state and local tax (SALT) implications of federal tax reform are numerous, yet still often unclear. With states releasing new law and guidance about federal tax reform, taxpayers must stay abreast of this very dynamic area of law. In this videocast, Todd Lard and Todd Betor discuss the gating question to the SALT implications of federal tax reform—state conformity to the IRC—along with other SALT considerations pertaining to major general, domestic and international tax provisions included in the new tax law.
