Sales Tax Policy

The Supreme Court of the United States recently ruled in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. [https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/17pdf/17-494_j4el.pdf] that businesses without a physical presence in a state may still be required to collect and remit sales taxes if they exceed specified transaction volumes in a state. Under the previous rules, a company without employees or property in a state was not required to charge sales tax on the sale of goods to customers in that state. Rather, it was the customer’s responsibility to pay use tax on these items.

Since this ruling, states have been rapidly changing their rules to adopt similar standards to South Dakota’s. LCS has reviewed our responsibilities in light of this ruling and identified states where we have an obligation to collect sales taxes under these new economic nexus standards. As a result, our invoices now reflect sales taxes in states where we exceed the minimum thresholds.
