California to follow South Dakota nexus threshold of the Wayfair decision!

On December 11, the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) announced that effective April 1, 2019, the South Dakota sales/use tax nexus thresholds will apply in California. I think we'll see the California legislature offer a law change to increase these thresholds, at least the one for 200 transactions in a year, to be something more realistic for California that also recognizes the burden on the CDTFA to seek out non-compliance vendors around the world that have 200 or mor...

There is a time to pitch, and when you have done the work to put the pitch in context and win, pitching is part of ...
