Jones Walker SALT Team member John Fletcher recently presented at the Council on State Taxation’s Sales Tax Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia. John’s panel, “Hot Topics – East of the Mississippi” covered litigation and legislative issues for companies with extensive operations east of the Mississippi River. Topics included the controversial recent trend by states to impose sales taxes on “marketplace facilitators” such as Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon, Facebook Marketplace, etc. (potentially converting non-taxable person-to-person sales into fully taxable commercial transactions) as well as developments related to and concerns over the constitutionality of various aspects of Louisiana’s local sales tax system. For more information on these issues, be sure to reach out to John or another Jones Walker SALT Team member.
