Great Northern Equipment Tax Strategy:
Great Northern Equipment strives to be transparent in all aspects of our business. This includes sales tax. The 2018 “Wayfair decision” has significantly changed the sales tax compliance landscape for many sellers including Great Northern Equipment. Our in-house finance team works to monitor the compliance requirements in each state and is actively working to evaluate our nexus in each taxing jurisdiction. When nexus is found we take the appropriate steps to be compliant including registering, collecting, and remitting sales tax. We recognize that many of our customers may be exempt from sales tax. As part of our compliance efforts, we’ll reach out to collect exemption certificates. We utilize an external vendor to maintain exemption certificates, provide tax rates, and file tax returns.
