Sales Tax

Nexus: Term used to connect a seller and a state that requires the seller to collect and remit tax on sales made in that state.

24 states now impose Sales Tax to online retail sellers. Most of them have imposed tax when sales exceed $100,000 or 200 transactions. For many small businesses selling inexpensive items this becomes a nightmare of compliance.
