Common Law Test: The Common Law Test is a guide used by the IRS to determine if a worker should be classified as an employee or an independent contractor. The standard Common Law test indicates a worker is likely an employee if the employer has control over what work is to be done and how to get it done.

De Minimis Threshold : The de minimis threshold refers to the value of imported goods below which no duty or tax is collected, and the customs declaration is very simple. The De Minimis tax rule states a price threshold to determine whether a discount bond should be taxed as capital gain or ordinary income.

Domicile: A person's fixed, permanent, and principal home for legal purposes.

Fringe Benefits: An extra benefit supplementing an employee's salary, for example, a company car, subsidized meals, health insurance, etc.

Nexus: The term nexus is used in tax law to describe a situation in which a business has a "nexus" or tax presence in a particular state or states. A nexus is basically a connection between a taxing jurisdiction, like a state, and an entity like a business that must collect or pay the tax.

Reciprocal Agreements: A reciprocal agreement, also called reciprocity, is an agreement between two states that allows residents of one state to request exemption from tax withholding in the other (reciprocal) state. This can save you the trouble of having to file multiple state returns.
