We're following up on our popular fall webinar with an update on changes to sales tax requirements and what jewelers should know because the current sales tax landscape is complex. Last year's U.S. Supreme Court decision (South Dakota vs. Wayfair) has major implications for sales tax collection. Both brick-and-mortar and online sellers should understand how it could increase the number of states that will require taxation of their online sales. This webinar will provide important updates for online sellers regarding where they are required to collect sales tax. Jewelers of America is bringing back experts on sales tax -- Accounting for Jewelers and TaxCloud -- to share the latest information on:

  • Individual state laws and whether or not your business must comply
  • Practical steps businesses can take to ensure they are complying with sales tax laws
  • Resources available to help businesses navigate the changes
