Exemption Certificates/Drop Shipping

Exemption Certificates/Drop Shipping


Course Description:

So you’ve decided to do some drop shipping! You have a good business plan, enough capital, and a good attitude! Everything seems to be in order, but wait! Do you know where you might have nexus? Do you know in which states and how much tax you are going to owe? If not, that could stop your business dead in its tracks at an inopportune moment! When it comes to drop shipping, calculating sales tax can be a very complex issue when you consider tax rate and rule changes, nexus, and exemption certificates.

Join Andrew Johnson and Michael Fleming, two highly knowledgeable tax consultants with a combined 30+ years in sales tax consulting. They will use this webinar to guide you through the complexities surrounding drop shipping, nexus and exemption certificates so you have a better understanding of what the next step is. You’ll learn who is supposed to collect exemption certificates, what are the best practices for collecting them, and what the consequences are for not getting it right!
