Your sales tax process has worked for you in the past so why worry about it, right? Wrong! As a business grows and expands into new markets, its sales tax obligations become more difficult to manage effectively. Add to that, pending sales tax legislation that could mean big changes for companies doing business out-of-state.
The Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 would allow states to require out-of-state businesses to collect sales tax. If this bill becomes law, states would gain authority to make remote businesses collect sales tax, some within 180 days of the bill’s passage.
Companies trying to accurately collect, file and remit sales and use taxes face an uphill battle in 2013. No business is immune, and you are wise to be prepared and stay ahead of the curve when it comes to sales tax compliance. You may think you have a handle on sales tax, but are you confident that you will be ready when an auditor comes knocking?
