Multi-State – Sales And Use Tax Compliance: What To Expect In 2019

Last year, you saw sales and use tax became increasingly complex with major taxability changes and more state-by-state rules. And that trend is only going to continue into this year.

So say the tax experts at Avalara who just released the new 2019 Sales Tax Changes Guide.

Here are the highlights that your A/R and A/P teams need to stay compliant.

  • 10 states added marketplace facilitator laws (with a handful more coming in early 2019), and
  • 5 states added new use tax reporting requirements.
