    About Multistate Tax Commission
    The Multistate Tax Commission (MTC) is an intergovernmental state tax agency whose mission is to achieve fairness by promoting compliance and consistent tax policy and practice and to preserve the sovereignty of state and local governments over their tax systems.

    Event Synopsis:
    Based on Supreme Court rulings in 1992, sales tax can be collected on online purchases if the seller has a “physical presence” in the state. However, this decision has been reversed in the South Dakota v. Wayfair case. On June 21, 2018, the Supreme Court decided that online sellers can now be required by the state to pay sales tax. According to the Supreme Court, modern e-commerce does not fall in the same category with the qualifications that led to the Quill decision, thus, requiring the seller to have a physical presence in the state.

    As online retailing and modern e-commerce continuously flourishes into a bigger industry, this ruling will be a key player to the changes coming to present sales tax compliance and collection.

    In this LIVE webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview to help you understand the critical elements of the South Dakota v. Wayfair case decision and its potential effects on online retailing industry, the sales tax collection and compliance landscape.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    • South Dakota v. Wayfair – An Overview
    • Latest Updates and Developments
    • Implications to Sales Tax Landscape
    • What’s to Come for the Online Retailing Industry?
    • Sales Tax Compliance and Collection in the Years to Come
