US States sales tax Economic Nexus Status at a glance - without spending a fortune, and without committing to a tax preparer or filing company.
TaxWatch analyzes your order history for the previous two years and determines how close you are to achieving "Economic Nexus Status" for each US State.
Economic Nexus Status is one of the thresholds which indicates whether you are required by law to collect and remit sales tax, for any given US state, as a remote seller. Note that this threshold applies to anyone selling into a given US State, not only those with physical presence there.
Economic nexus is based on gross sales and/or transaction count, over 1 or 2 distinct time periods - and each state's specific rules are different.
Once analyzed (in a matter of seconds), TaxWatch presents the data in an easy-to-understand manner:
A color-coded map of the US which shows each state and Washington DC. This map indicates, at-a-glance, how close you are to reaching economic nexus, and thus required to collect and remit sales tax, for each state. Each state is hover-able and select-able to show any given state's summary and details.
A color-coded summary data table of the US states and DC, showing how close you are to reaching economic nexus status, relative to the current and previous tax period. Each state is selectable to show any given state's criteria, summary and details.
Data shown in the summary data table is exportable to an accountant-friendly CSV file. CSV files can then be imported into external programs and systems, such as well-known spreadsheets and tax programs. Your accountant will thank you.
Helpful URL links and phone numbers for each US state's official tax agency, including pointers to the state's web pages for remote sellers (that's you), how to apply for a tax id, and how to file your collected sales taxes.
