Did you know that sliced bagels are taxable in New York, but whole bagels are not? Or that snow removal is taxable in Ohio but not in Illinois? There’s a lot that goes into calculating the right sales tax rate depending on what you sell and where, but with so many rules to understand, determining rates can get unwieldy. And with the recent spike in e-commerce, it’s even more confusing.
In this webinar, we’re going back to sales tax basics to help you understand what goes into calculating the right rate for every transaction. From state and local tax rates to product taxability, sourcing rules, and more, we’ll explain what you need to know to get calculations right.
