I hope you aren’t sick and tired of reading about nexus, sales tax, and collection obligations, because I sure am tired of writing about it. But how could I not? I can’t tell you how many years I had to go without having a great conversation about sales tax and now we have President Trump tweeting about it at the same time the Supreme Court is about to hear a landmark case on that very same topic. It’s a great time to be a sales tax enthusiast!
Readers, let’s sum up where we have been and where I think we are going in these tumultuous times.

Hence the reason why clients, especially those from overseas, simply can’t fathom why they have to file so many different tax returns with so many different sets of rules.
