Comply or Fight? The Tax Threat from the States with Paul Rafelson and Tim Nelson
State tax authorities have gone into hyper-aggressive enforcement mode against online merchants. States want merchants to collect in every state Amazon has a distribution center, but this is only the beginning. Collecting sales tax, in the state’s view, opens you up to other tax filing responsibilities such as income tax franchise tax, filing fees, even property tax in some states. The cost of complying all of these requirements in just 25 states could easily exceed $100,000 (USD). We expect states to continue to send audit letters, meaning the associated filing costs will increase. State governments hope that the Supreme Court case will pave the way to make more sellers comply regardless of physical presence. I’ll show you what you need to do.
Paul Rafelson is a tax attorney representing online merchants in tax and other business matters. Prior to advising online merchants, Paul spent over 12 years defending Fortune 100 companies in complex state tax litigation matters, spending most of his career as in-house tax counsel for Microsoft, Walmart and General Electric.
