APA’s Nexus Presence Report Now Available

BY: Mike Linehan | 04/11/22

The APA’s Government Relations Task Force released its report, Employees Are Where? Presence, Nexus, and Employment Taxes: A Payroll Analysis. The report can be downloaded from APA’s website on the Hot Topics—Multi-State Taxation page.

The report provides an overview of existing state and local laws and regulations on business nexus and employment tax withholding and reporting. The report is intended to help payroll professionals and their employers identify business nexus and tax withholding challenges.

Employers must find a way to clearly identify where employees are located during all hours they work, and payroll management also must track differing state and local requirements, such as the length of time in a state that an employee must work to trigger state tax withholding.
