  • We recommend that you collect tax where you are required to collect, and register there so you can remit the collected tax to the tax jurisdiction.
  • The reasons that a company can be required to collect tax varies from state to state.
  • We suggest you contact your accountant, tax attorney, or other qualified sales tax professional to conduct a nexus study for your business. Avalara provides a variety of professional tax services including nexus studies, voluntary disclosure agreements, and tax registration services.
