COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic and many of us have already been forced to close our businesses, at least temporarily. Maybe we’re working from home and trying to keep things as normal as possible. Maybe we’re struggling to keep the doors open and the staff paid, even as revenue falls. Maybe we’re just battening down the hatches and hoping we can catch up once it’s all over.
However the pandemic is affecting you and your business, most states are not extending deadlines for sales tax filings. Some are waiving penalties, but they are expecting you to comply with filing deadlines. With the 2018 Wayfair decision allowing states to compel remote sellers to file sales tax, and the number of states that have updated their laws, you may face filing for the first time in multiple states.
Each one has its own set of rules and requirements.
This has been stressful allaying, but the combination of the thorny sales tax environment and the pandemic is ratcheting up the stress levels beyond the normal rate. Small businesses were already worrying that the Wayfair decision would put them out of business. The economic effects of COVID-19 and the resulting shutdowns may just be the last straw.
