ABC 27, WHTM | Exactor Webinar Explores Tax Implications of the Marketplace Fairness Act
CEO Jonathan Barsade to Present Two One-Hour Sessions on December 18th -Presented in Conjunction with Commerce Guy, Developers of Drupal Commerce Platform
WYNNEWOOD, Pa., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –Exactor, Inc. (http://www.exactor.com), a leading provider of sales and use tax compliance services, announced today that its CEO Jonathan Barsade is presenting a webinar in conjunction with Commerce Guys, the software firm behind the development of Drupal Commerce, a leading open source Drupal framework for e-commerce. The one-hour webinar, titled “How Will the Marketplace Fairness Act Affect You?,” will be held at both 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM EST on December 18, 2013.
The webinar provides attendees with insights into the implications of the Marketplace Fairness Act (MFA), which gives states the power to enforce sales tax rules for online sales, even in cases where the seller and buyer are in separate states. The proposed law will provide states with leverage for aggressively pursuing tax revenue from online retailers, a group that has enjoyed no-tax loopholes for years. The webinar is focused on companies that use Drupal, but its implications apply to all online retailers who are concerned about how to handle the ramifications of the pending MFA legislation.
“Passage of the MFA will bring pressure on e-commerce sites to quickly comply with new tax regulations,” said Barsade. “This webinar provides firms in the Drupal framework community and other e-commerce players with insights on the MFA, why they should be concerned and how they can leverage Commerce Guys with our built-in solution. E-commerce firms that proactively take steps to ensure accurate and reliable sales tax compliance will eliminate a future headache and can instead focus on growing revenue and market share.”
