CCH to Hold Audio Conference on Streamlined Sales Tax

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., April 27, 2006) – Based on continuing interest in the Streamlined Sales Tax (SST), the topic will again be the focus of a live, 100-minute audio conference presented by CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and a leading provider of tax information, software and services ( The conference will be held on Friday, May 5, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern; 1:00 p.m. Central. Two experts in the field, John C. Healy of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Bruce Nelson of the Denver law firm Silverstein & Pomerantz LLP , will bring attendees up to date on emerging developments and questions about this initiative, which is already changing the fundamental way tax compliance for interstate transactions is handled.

“The SST continues to perplex practitioners as they chart courses for their companies and clients,” said Richard Jarvis, CCH managing editor. “Are states softening in their commitment to the Streamlined Sales Tax? Should companies take advantage of amnesty programs? What are the possible consequences of registering with the SST, including the state income tax implications? How should companies set up a compliance program? To provide the latest insights, we’re once again addressing this vital topic in an audio seminar.”

In the seminar, Healy and Nelson will discuss the basic issues behind the SST and how it affects concepts such as nexus; outline the complexities that have become part of the SST and that will affect ongoing compliance; point out unanswered questions that remain despite the ongoing work of state officials; discuss the impact the SST will have on a wide range of businesses; and look toward the future with an eye toward what to expect next. In addition, they will address participants’ concerns in a live question-and-answer session.
