Happy Fiscal New Year! Sales Tax Changes Are Here Again!
Managing sales tax compliance is no easy feat. The tax rates you need to apply can change radically from one state to the next, and even from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Your products or services may even be taxable for one customer and not for another customer in a different state. Then, you’ve got sales tax holidays, which mean you also have to consider when you’re selling in certain states. As if that’s not complex enough, why not shake things up every now and then as states decide which rates and rules to change? For 46 states, the fiscal new year comes on July 1st each year. That’s also a time when many of them make changes to their sales tax laws. In 2016 – per usual – a long list of new changes has been put in place.

Is Your Redundancy Safe Enough?
Redundancy is not a new concept, but not all redundancy is equal. The value of redundancy depends on how closely (or broadly) you look at it. Hardware Redundancy If you have five storage devices working in RAID 5 you may have one of those storage devices fail, but all of your data would remain intact due to the support of the redundant drives. To use an analogy, if you have five warehouses and they are all are filled to 80% capacity, you can move some of the contents into the extra space left in all the other warehouses in the event that one experiences a flood. Normally, this means each warehouse uses less than 100% of the available capacity, so in the event of a flood, you can redistribute the contents of the flooded warehouse into the undamaged warehouses. This redistribution allows you to keep working on cleaning up the […]
