Popular Sales Tax Service Helps Online Retailers Comply with the New Sales Tax Landscape
NORWALK, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On April 1, 2019, California, the world’s fifth largest economy, becomes the 34th state to compel out-of-state sellers to collect sales tax as a result of the June 2018 Wayfair ruling. These states have a myriad sales tax rates, rules, and jurisdictions that create significant challenges for online retailers to resolve. TaxCloud is pleased to announce a national SiriusXM advertising campaign promoting its proprietary software that can relieve this sudden burden with immediacy and ease.
