A sub-component of our outsourcing practice, this service eliminates accounts payable delays when processing sales tax compliance liability checks. This service can accommodate companies that prefer to have a separate escrow account for making state payments. We offer two flexible options through a Tax Escrow Account.
The regulations and registration requirements for collecting and remitting sales tax varies by state. Here are some questions to determine your obligation to register:
Do you provide taxable sales or services?
Do you have a physical presence in the state?
Do your sales representatives operate in multiple states?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above, SUTC can guide you in the registration process. We can file the necessary forms to allow you to operate and pay taxes in all states and local jurisdictions.

Nexus and Taxability Research
What is nexus?
It is a means of connection, a tie or a link
How does that translate to sales tax?
Nexus for sales tax purposes requires a physical presence (connection, tie or link) in the taxing jurisdiction.
Do you have nexus?
Perhaps. We can help you make that determination.
Are tax laws the same in every state?
No. A product or service may be taxed in one state and not in another. Even within one state, local sales tax ordinances may or may not mirror state laws.
What’s unique about your industry or business? How are your products or services taxed?
Our research will provide a course of action to ensure compliance with all state and local sales tax laws.
