What constitutes sales tax nexus in Vermont?

One of the more complicated aspects of Vermont sales tax law is sales tax nexus, the determination of whether a particular sale took place within the taxation jurisdiction of Vermont, and is thus subject to state (and possibly local) sales taxes.

On this page, we have compiled some of the most commonly needed facts about what constitutes sales tax nexus in Vermont.
