Don't miss our next Meetup as we return to eBay for a very special program:

 

Sales Tax Tips for eCommerce Sellers

Mark Faggiano, Web Entrepreneur and Founder of TaxJar

Richard Nash, Director and Head of Government Relations for the Americas, eBay


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What's all the buzz about sales tax? You may have heard about the pending sales tax legislation and wonder how it will affect you as an online seller. Join us on June 27 as Mark Faggiano, founder of TaxJar, and Richard Nash, eBay's Director and Head of Government Relations for the Americas, bring us up to speed on this important topic. There's valuable information here for all sellers - whether you sell on one or multiple platforms today, are thinking about it, or simply have sales tax questions.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What selling on multiple channels means for your sales tax returns
  • Destination versus origin-based sales tax states
  • Guidance on how to collect for destination states when eBay only allows you to collect one flat rate
  • What nexus means for FBA sellers
  • Update on where the Internet Sales Tax law stands
  • Why your life probably won't change regardless of the outcome of the legislation

 

About Our Speakers

Mark Faggiano (FAH-JEE-AH-NO) is a web entrepreneur whose passion is helping small business owners be more successful. Since quitting corporate life and venturing out on his own in 2004, Mark has helped thousands of small businesses by making their tax lives easier.

Mark founded a company called FileLater to help businesses, as well as individuals, file tax extensions safely and quickly online – giving them more time to gather all of their paperwork and get ready to file their annual returns. Not too long after being founded, FileLater became the industry-leading tax extension website and was acquired in 2010.

Mark also started a website called EasyEstimatedTaxes.com to give the self-employed the simplest way possible to pay quarterly estimated taxes online. To date, Easy Estimated Taxes has processed more than $7 million in estimated tax payments for those who hate the traditional method of mailing a check with a voucher to the IRS.

Mark’s newest venture, TaxJar, is helping make filing sales tax easier for ecommerce merchants.

A native of Boston, Mark lives and works in San Diego.

    A VERY interesting evening. I enjoyed the presentations of Mark and Richard. TaxJar has earned a visit. I will also try to be more involved in eBay lobbying for small business. Perhaps the best part was meeting other eBay sellers and Education Specialists.
