Connected Business And TaxJar Team Up To Offer The First Fully Integrated Sales Tax Compliance Solution! Webinar 10/19/18

On June 21st, 2018, a Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair granted the state of South Dakota authority to impose sales tax obligations on out-of-state transactions. This ruling is having a major impact on many small to mid-sized businesses by creating an "Economic Nexus" in states they do not have a physical location (Nexus) in.

To fully understand the impact of this decision, there are over 10,800 sales tax jurisdictions in the United States that made nearly 400 tax changes just in the first half of 2017. While Fortune 500 businesses can afford to have a dedicated sales tax compliance team, many small to mid-sized businesses cannot and are severely disadvantaged by this ruling.

To help small to mid-sized businesses collect, report, and submit sales tax we are excited to announce a new partnering with TaxJar, a leading sales tax automation service.

With this new partnership, small to mid-sized businesses will benefit from the first “out of the box” unified ERP + eCommerce + POS + Sales Tax automation solution.

The solution will integrate TaxJar’s complex sales tax calculation engine across the ERP and eCommerce modules of Connected Business so that sales tax computation is always 100% accurate. For tax reporting, Connected Business will update TaxJar on all transactions (including Tax Exempt) made in the Connected Business ERP, eCommerce, and POS modules so that TaxJar can take care of the reporting for you.

With Connected Business and TaxJar, tax compliance will be greatly simplified - almost painless. No clunky third-party add-ins and no taxation errors due to the updating of multiple solutions.

We will be holding a short webinar on Friday October 19th to discuss this integration and how it will benefit companies that sell across state lines. No matter what solution your company uses, this will be an informative event that you will want to attend.

We look forward to having you attend the webinar. Until then, take a quick look at the economic nexus rules on the following states:
