2017 – 05/08 – Operating across state lines presents tax risks — or possibly rewards

Operating in another state might mean being subject to taxation there, generally if you have nexus with the state. Essentially, “nexus” means a business presence that’s substantial enough to trigger the state’s tax rules and obligations. What activates nexus depends on a state’s chosen criteria. Triggers vary but common ones are employing workers in the state, owning or leasing property there, or maintaining substantial inventory there. Sometimes operating in another state could actually lower your tax liability. Contact us for more info on multistate taxation.
