Watch for a new tip and case study each day, for the first twelve days of the year
Determine if you created nexus in any new jurisdiction over the year.
Have you sent an agent or sales representative to a new state? Delivered and installed
a product in a new state on a regular basis? Did you hire new employees that work
from a remote location? Answering yes to any of these questions may mean that you
will have nexus in a new state in 2012. Nexus laws are often quite complex (see
the case study below), and each state is different. Review the laws in each new
state where you conducted business, and If you have indeed established nexus, check
the state’s sales tax laws so that you can accurately calculate, file, and remit
there in 2012.
