Companies are still sorting through changes in collecting and remitting sales tax stemming from the 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court decision. Concurrently, the COVID-19 pandemic has enabled businesses to adopt new strategies and establish or expand their online selling presence and capabilities. The result is additional complexity for effective sales tax management and a significant increase in risk and unanticipated tax liability.

Join Duff & Phelps' Sales and Use Tax specialists along with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and Avalara for a webcast discussing sales tax considerations both economically and operationally in today's uncertain environment. Panelists will address various issues and updates critical for companies to thrive, including state enforcement and audit efforts for sales tax compliance purposes.

Schedule: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. (ET)
