Top Ten Sales and Use Tax Cases

Taxation of Digital Advertising & Services

With budgets stretching thin, there is a growing trend for states and localities to seek to impose sales and use, transaction, and gross receipts taxes on digital advertising and other digital services. This panel will discuss the various approaches state and local jurisdictions have taken to impose this often controversial tax and will also discuss how other countries and international organizations are handling these issues to see whether some of those international trends might arrive in the states.

Perspectives on Taxing the Sharing Economy

The old-fashioned sales of tangible personal property that have traditionally been central to state sales tax regimes are quickly becoming the exception, rather than the rule. Now, more than ever, purchasers just want a limited right to use tangible personal property, and sellers have rapidly grown to meet that demand. This panel will discuss the various approaches states have taken to taxing this new, sharing economy, including recent legislative, regulatory, and judicial developments.
