The “Nexus Risk Review,”  [“Nexus Report” or “Free Nexus Risk Review”] is not intended by DS&B, Ltd. to be used, and cannot be used, by a client or any other person or entity for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties that may be imposed on any taxpayer. Our risk assessment is based on information from Bloomberg BNA’s annual Survey of State Tax Departments, in which Bloomberg BNA asks an official from each state whether a particular activity performed within a state’s borders would, by itself, be sufficient to trigger income tax nexus and reporting and payment obligations. While the responses are generally indicative of each state’s policy, they should not be relied upon as legally binding policy statements.
