Aronson: Sales Tax Treatment of SaaS – The Convergence of a Broadening Tax Base and Economic Nexus
August 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Recent changes in sales tax laws throughout the country have significantly impacted both sellers and buyers of software and/or SaaS products. States have been broadening the application of their sales taxes. As a result, electronically delivered software and SaaS sales are being taxed in an increasing number of states. Further, the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair has enabled states to enact rules that require more small businesses to collect sales tax from states where those businesses have presence.
