State & Local Tax Update: California Selectively Conforms to Federal Tax Reform

Posted 5:45 PM by
California Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signed Assembly Bill 91 into law, selectively conforming to provisions of the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a.k.a tax reform. As part of this response to tax reform, California left its static conformity date as Jan. 1, 2015, but the state identified specific sections to follow for California purposes. In some instances, an election can be made impacting the 2018 tax year.

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. This change will have a cascading effect in the deal space. In South Dakota v. Wayfair (Wayfair), the court held that an out-of-state company could establish nexus by exceeding certain thresholds of dollar volume or number of sales into the state, a standard known as “economic nexus.” Moving forward, potential buyers and sellers need to understand the new complexities the Wayfair decision has added to the due diligence process. 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.

Dispelling Myths About Sales Tax Obligations After the Wayfair Decision

Posted 7:30 PM by
It’s rare for a Supreme Court tax case to make headlines in the mainstream media, but that’s just what happened last year when the court announced its decision in the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair (Wayfair). What most folks “learned” from the coverage was actually full of half-truths and myths, the biggest one being that Internet retailers like Amazon would have to start “charging customers” state sales tax on their purchases. As with most news reports about taxes, reporters did their best to summarize a complex issue, but many taxpayers were left confused about how the change affects them. This confusion is now playing out in the day-to-day operations of businesses across the country, leaving many out of compliance when they otherwise thought they were.
