Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

As we wait for a decision in the Wayfair v. South DakotaSupreme Court Case regarding online sales tax, we thought it would be fun to take a look at possible outcomes depending on how the Court rules.

Our Opinion On The Online Sales Tax Case

Back in March we shared our predictions on how the online sales tax case’s outcome would affect businesses.

What if the Supreme Court rules against South Dakota? We’re back where we started with Quill remaining the physical presence standard and states passing various legislation that’s either unconstitutional (and likely not upheld) or that requires onerous reporting. Read more

Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Wayfair v. South Dakota online sales tax case. While the court’s decision regarding the matter isn’t expected until June, the Justices’ questions in the matter reveal that it’s far from already settled, and they’re divided on whether or not Quill should be overruled.

Arkansas Tax, Tax Climate, Taxation, Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

This month we travel to the southern state of Arkansas, the Natural State. It is known for its abundant parks and wilderness areas, with terrain encompassing mountains, caves, rivers and hot springs. The rugged Ozarks region in the northwest portion of the state has hiking trails and limestone caves, such as Blanchard Springs Caverns.

The state’s diverse geography varies from mountain ranges from the Ozark and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the densely forested land in the south known as the Arkansas Timberlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta.

2018 Car And Truck Depreciation Limits Explained

Daniel Morris, Tax Blog, Tax Advisor, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

For this year’s 2018 Depreciation Limits, business use vehicles offer opportunities and challenges. Claiming depreciation as a business expense for personally available vehicles is a clear advantage. As is common, a “but” is included due to special rules known as “Listed Property” attributes. These rules recognize there are both personal and business attributes associated with the same asset; the vehicle has a value to the individual and their business using the vehicle which has necessitated specific 2018 Car and Truck Depreciation Limits.

The conceptual challenge is that there are differences between a business van say, for a “Construction Person”, and the “Executive” with a new Mercedes, known as Listed Property. Read more

Another Cryptocurrency Primer Of Our Cyber Universe: Who, What, And Why They Differ

Daniel Morris, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections
  1. Who are the major players I think you should be aware of
  2. What’s a DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization)?
  3. If Cyber Currency is so Great, Why are there so many challenges in the Community?
  4. My Crystal Ball

The cryptocurrency, or digital currently world is complex with a few core leaders and hundreds, if not thousands, of related active alternatives. All are predicated on the concept of the Blockchain or often referred to as the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). While the core history of Bitcoin and its related alternatives is fairly accessible via a simplified web search, popular media, and even “analog” books, I have determined that far too many do not understand the differences and similarities between and among these various alternative coins (Alt Coins).

Pennsylvania And The Economic Nexus Bandwagon- No April Fools!

Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

As you know from reading our blogs, multi-state tax can be difficult to navigate! When businesses sell their products across state lines, they need to think about whether they have taxable presence, or nexus, in the state and if their products are taxable.

Generally companies establish nexus by having a physical presence in the state. However, several states have recently been pushing the boundaries of defining the physical presence notion in order to generate more revenue. The concept of “economic nexus” is gaining greater momentum. Read more

Daniel Morris, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

We won’t say we were barraged with questions of concern after the announcement of the most sweeping U.S. tax legislation in more than 30 years, but pretty darn close. At least we’re starting to have “Strategic” conversation about Taxes now instead of it being an afterthought.

The 2017 Tax Cuts Jobs Act And Opportunities

While the new legislation includes many pro-growth features, including a deep reduction in the corporate tax rate, a scaled-back state, and the local tax deduction, full-expensing for five years, and lower individual tax rates, discipline is essential. Read more

This Year’s Omnibus Bill: What About Internet Sales Tax?

Monika Miles, Tax Blog, Tax Advisor, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

Last week Congress passed the 2018 omnibus spending bill after finalizing the language at the last minute. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, specifically Rep. Kristi Noem, were pushing to include online sales tax legislation, but ultimately the House’s chief deputy whip, Rep. Patrick McHenry, “Signaled…that Noem’s measure won’t be included in the omnibus and hasn’t had enough vetting.”

About The Online Sales Tax Provision

Rep. Noem made an aggressive push to add the online sales tax legislation to the bill last minute. As The Hill explains: Read more

California’s Border Wall And Participation With State Tax Credits

Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, Tax Blog, San Jose, California, USA, TaxConnections

The Federal Government’s proposed border wall with Mexico has been getting a lot of attention lately, particularly since the president recently visited the Golden State. One California legislator has an interesting take on the ongoing disagreement between California and the White House. Assemblyman Phil Ting, of CA, recently announced his bill, A.B. 2355, as a way to incentivize companies not to participate in the building of the wall.

The Logistics

As recently reported by Bloomberg BNA, companies that participate in the building of the Federal government’s proposed wall with Mexico, on the California border, would not be able to participate in several state tax credits. Read more

Wayfair Vs. South Dakota: What Are The Possible Outcomes Of The Online Sales Tax Case?

Monika Miles, Tax Advisor, San Jose, California, USA, Tax Blog, TaxConnections

Earlier this year we shared the U.S. Supreme Court would hear a case related to online sales taxWayfair v. South Dakota. This ruling could settle how online purchases are taxed, potentially overturning the 1992 Quill Corp v. North Dakota ruling currently preventing states from collecting sales tax from sellers without a physical presence (or nexus) in the state.

Why is it worth it for the Supreme Court to consider this case rather than fall back on the previous Quill ruling? The world has changed a lot since 1992. As The Wall Street Journal reports, “In 1992, the justices ‘did not and could not anticipate the development of modern e-commerce,’ Solicitor General Noel Francisco wrote in a friend-of the-court brief.” Read more
