7 Today s Speaker Nicole Huberty, JD Lead Legal Analyst Responsible for researching and analyzing sales/use tax laws and regulations Corresponds with state and local tax authorities to monitor changes in sales/use tax rates and rules Law degree from University of Oregon Previously with Oregon Dept of Justice

8 Definition of Sales Tax and Use Tax Sales tax is a transaction tax on the retail sale of tangible personal property and selected services. Use Tax acts as a complement to the sales tax. While sales tax is assessed upon the retail sale of tangible personal property, the use tax is generally assessed upon the storage, use, or consumption of tangible personal property purchased at retail and upon which no sales tax was paid.

9 Definition of Nexus Whether a company is required to collect sales/use tax is dependent on whether the company has nexus with the state Nexus is the minimum connection or physical presence that must exist before a state can impose tax liability and reporting requirements on a company.

10 Poll Question How many states are you currently registered in?

11 Quill Corp. v. North Dakota 504 U.S. 298 (1992) US Supreme Court Decision Conclusion: A State can not require an out-of-state vendor to collect sales or use tax unless the vendor has established a physical presence in the state Facts: Quill s Activities in North Dakota Mail-order vendor of office supplies Quill had no office, warehouse, retail outlet, or other facility located in North Dakota, nor were any Quill employees or sales representatives physically present in North Dakota

12 Quill Analysis State argued that physical presence should no longer be the defining point for nexus. With computers, satellite transmission, etc., a seller can do business almost anywhere without physically being present. The North Dakota Supreme Court ruled that Quill had constitutional nexus through its economic presence. The U.S. Supreme Court reversed the lower court s ruling and reaffirmed physical presence nexus standard.

13 Substantial Nexus The level of substantial nexus varies depending on the state.

14 Substantial Nexus The threshold for substantial nexus is dependent on the type of tax Sales Tax minimal physical presence Income Tax Public Law Can have an employee or independent contractor if the person is doing no more than soliciting sales of tangible personal property Sales orders must be accepted and fulfilled outside of the state It is possible to have nexus for sales tax purposes but not have it for income tax purposes

15 What constitutes a physical presence? Nexus refers to the links, connections, or contacts between a political jurisdiction and a taxpayer. Company-owned property Company employees Company agents

16 What business activities give rise to sales/use tax nexus? Company-Owned Property Where do you maintain a permanent and/or temporary place of business? Warehouse Sales Office Manufacturing Plant Trade Show Booth Sales Meeting Training Site

17 What business activities give rise to sales/use tax nexus? Company Employees Where do you have employees permanently and/or temporarily operating on your behalf? Sales People Service People Administrative Staff

18 What business activities give rise to sales/use tax nexus? Company Agents: Where do you have agents operating on your behalf? Independent Agents Affiliated Companies

19 Poll Question Which of the following activities do you believe are creating your nexus exposure? Company-owned property Temporary Locations (tradeshows, sales meetings, training sites) Sales people Company agents / Independent contractors All of the above

20 Defining Nexus by State: Some Examples State Threshold Nexus? Massachusetts Regularly and systematically soliciting orders or otherwise exploiting the retail sales market New York Entering into an agreement with a state resident under which the resident, for a commission or other consideration, refers potential customers to the seller Pennsylvania Texas Maintaining a place of business, permanently or temporarily; and having an agent or representative, permanently or temporarily Providing taxable services through company employees, authorized repair or service agents, or independent contractors

21 How Frequency Impacts Nexus How frequent are the activities within the state? Regular, systematic, on-going Infrequent, irregular, minimal contact State Number of Days Nexus? Arizona Michigan Minnesota 3 or more 2 or more 4 or more

22 General Concerns of Government States Concerns about e-commerce Eroding tax base, lost tax revenues Increased cost of administration Streamlined Sales Tax Goal: Reduce the complexity for remote sellers so that Congress will abolish the physical presence test. If the physical presence test is eliminated, all sellers into a state will be required to collect and remit tax.

23 Affiliate Nexus and Click-Through Nexus The Amazon laws aim to collect sales tax for internet sales from companies who otherwise lack sufficient nexus to require them to collect sales and use tax on their Internet sales. They re named after the biggest online retailer that the law targets. Many states are starting to refer to these laws as click-through-nexus laws.

24 Amazon Laws First Legislation New York First to pass Amazon law in 2008 North Carolina and Rhode Island Passed similar versions in 2009 Colorado and Oklahoma Expanded nexus presumption for out-of-state retailers Added noticing requirements

25 Nexus Legislation Arkansas Affiliate nexus and click-through-nexus legislation signed April 1, 2011 Connecticut Click-through-nexus legislation effective May 4, 2011 Lower gross receipts threshold Illinois Click-through-nexus legislation effective July 1, 2011 April 2012: Law ruled unconstitutional

26 Nexus Legislation 2011 South Dakota Affiliate nexus law expanding definition of nexus Law includes notice and reporting requirements Vermont Delayed implementation: Effective only after 15 other states adopt click-through-nexus laws

27 Nexus Legislation 2012 California 2011 Amazon legislation repealed for one year Effective date: September 15, 2012 Colorado Direct Marketing Association v. Colorado DOR March 30 th : Permanent injunction blocking enforcement of notice and reporting provisions of nexus law Georgia Click-through-nexus legislation effective October 1, 2012 Higher gross receipts threshold: $50,000 annually

28 Nexus Legislation 2012 Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Sales Tax Bulletin , 12/01/2011 Remote e-commerce sellers to collect tax September 1, 2012 Tennessee Affiliate nexus bill signed March 23, 2012 Notification element Texas Amazon legislation passed in 2011 Amazon started collecting tax July 1, 2012

29 Nexus Legislation Utah and Virginia Affiliate nexus legislation Expands types of sellers who are required to collect tax Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Agreements with states to start collecting tax Amazon to lobby for federal legislation

30 What are your responsibilities if you have Nexus? Register and Collect Sales Tax: A retailer selling taxable goods or services within a state must register and collect sales tax on all taxable sales into the state Remit Use Tax: You must remit use tax on taxable purchases if tax was not charged by the seller File Returns: Remit the appropriate taxes in a timely manner Audit: Tax collection and returns are subject to verification by the tax jurisdiction

31 Consequence of not Registering when you have Nexus If a business has nexus within a state and does not register and pay the appropriate taxes, the business could face costly consequences, which include: Steep penalties Extensive interest Risk of being accused of fraud especially if tax was collected and not remitted Extended look back periods for delinquent taxes

32 What Now? Confirm and then document your business activities within each state. If you have activity / physical presence within the state then determine the date of first activity. Determine your exposure for that period of time How much tax should have been collected and remitted At any time was tax collected? Determine the best way to get in compliance with the tax jurisdiction

33 Getting in Compliance Self Register Register under an Amnesty Agreement Pursue a Voluntary Disclosure Agreement

34 Poll Question Does your company have a solid understanding of their nexus footprint? Yes No

35 95% of Survey Companies Underestimate their Nexus Footprint A study conducted by ONESOURCE Indirect Tax found that 95% of companies surveyed underestimated their sales tax liability Surveyed customers ranged in size from $3 million to $170 million in revenue across a wide range of industries 85% of participating companies underestimated the number of states they needed to register in by more than 50% Mid-sized companies with customers all over the country were most likely to underestimate nexus and carried significantly more risk of audit exposure
