    Webinar: Sales Tax after June of 2018 #Game Changer

    12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
    Fee: Free, registration required
    Location: Online

    While the new income tax law grabs headlines, for small business owners there was another big 2018 tax change. This change involves a Supreme Court decision on sales tax. The ruling expands states ability to levy sales tax on out of state purchasers. So now small business owners will need to understand sales tax anywhere they sell, not just where they are located. This is especially difficult, because each state is now figuring out how they want to proceed. This webinar will talk about how businesses in Pennsylvania collect and pay sales tax now and what they need to prepare for going forward.
