Nexus Reviews: Uncovering New State Sales Or Income Tax Obligations
|Date / Time:
States continue to expand interpretations of activities that trigger business taxpayer nexus, creating new sales or corporate income tax filing obligations. With the “Amazon tax,” economic and other nexus approaches proliferating, comprehensive nexus reviews are essential for multi-state corporations.
Whether performed by an accounting firm or by the taxpayer, multi-state nexus reviews must be thorough and well-planned to adapt to the latest nexus theories. However, the party performing the review faces challenges getting reliable support and information from non-tax departments in the company.
A strategic nexus review starts with carefully thought-out research, brings in other corporate departments, and finishes with action items geared to solidifying your company’s position. An effective review must identify any physical presence triggering sales tax or activities leading to corporate income tax, given the current state of nexus laws.
Listen as our panel of authoritative advisors, experienced in conducting nexus reviews, offers their perspectives, practical experiences, and best practices to efficiently plan and execute a nexus evaluation.
- Identifying potential triggers of states’ sales and income tax nexus
- Interpreting state laws
- Analyzing corporate activities in key states
- Crafting an ongoing nexus-monitoring program
- Designing an effective nexus questionnaire
- Fostering cooperation among departments
- Tracking legal and regulatory updates from state revenue agencies
- Implementing action items from a nexus review
- Voluntary disclosure agreements
- Tax amnesty programs
- Filing new returns
The panel will offer you action-oriented guidance on each step of developing and executing a nexus review:
- Designing the nexus questionnaire: Posing clear and insightful questions and balancing your need for information against impractical requests
- Getting buy-in from the company’s staff: Making a persuasive pitch to put your review at the top of their to-do list
- Taking action: Making sound choices about responding, negotiating voluntary disclosure agreements, and filing well-supported state tax returns
Upon completing this seminar, you will have the best practices needed to implement a comprehensive nexus review that identifies potential state sales and use or corporate income tax obligations, as well as potential opportunities to reduce or eliminate state tax obligation.
