How Wayfair v. South Dakota Changed M&A Due Diligence

Posted 5:50 PM by
The U.S. Supreme Court recently shifted one of the foundational principles that determine how a state can tax business transactions within its boundaries.

It is more important than ever to have deep knowledge of what the target business sells, where it has established nexus, and whether or not it has complied with obligations in those states.
