State Tax Nexus Studies

One of the biggest concerns that many businesses have - especially if they are making sales into many states and / or have employees in or provide services in multiple states is understanding whether they have a requirement to register, file, collect and/or withhold and pay state taxes. A business can be liable to many type of state taxes including;  
  •      Corporate Income Tax
  •      Non-income Based Taxes (e.g., Washington B&O, Texas Margin Tax)
  •      Sales & Use Tax.
  •      Franchise Taxes
  •      State Payroll Withholding

In a nexus study we will evaluate your companies activities in the various states, research and interpret the applicable state laws and advise you on whether your business has nexus in any states, as well as advise and assist you with taking steps to get into compliance.
