Navigating the New Norms of Sales Tax Compliance: A Guide for Oregon Businesses

The landmark 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. decision introduced "economic nexus" standards, compelling companies to adhere to sales tax regulations in states where they conduct substantial business, regardless of physical presence. This has meant that Oregon business need to review their sales footprint by state and begin to file taxes where they have not had to historically.


The Challenge of Economic Nexus


The decision means Oregon companies must now monitor their sales activity across state lines more closely. If a company surpasses certain thresholds, such as $100,000 in sales or 200 transactions in a state, it may be required to register, collect, and remit sales tax in those jurisdictions. This compliance is not just cumbersome but perilous to overlook due to hefty penalties for non-compliance.
