Multistate income tax issues for remote sellers
Abstract: Businesses that engage in e-commerce must consider the tax implications of their Internet activities in other states. This article points out that in recent years, much of the discussion about multistate taxation has focused on sales tax, but that businesses should also consider the income tax implications of doing business across state lines. It notes that recently, the Multistate Tax Commission (MTC) revised guidance that may raise new income tax concerns for remote sellers. A sidebar looks at earlier MTC recommendations regarding e-commerce.
