Why Should You Attend:

Drop shippers everywhere are falling prey to state auditors who charge them tax when shipping into their states on behalf of retailers who don’t have nexus there. Retailers claim resale exemption. How can the retailer satisfy the drop shipper and the state auditor?

Through this course, get up to speed on the most complex national sales tax issue and what it takes to comply with the various state regulations. Attendees will learn to identify documentation required under various state laws as they have vastly different requirements.

This webinar will provide valuable insights on the complex issues of interstate sales using drop shippers. Learn more about the obligations of out-of-state (foreign) sellers (drop shippers) to collect the destination state’s taxes unless they obtain appropriate resale certification from foreign retailers – and why this is so difficult to do when a drop shipper is involved.
