Affiliate Nexus: Affiliate" nexus refers to a connection between a vendor and another entity that may be related in some way or that performs certain work that can be attributed to the vendor to cause, or presume to cause, the vendor to have nexus in the taxing jurisdiction.

Bitcoin: Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.

Click-Through Nexus : Click-through nexus laws generally provide that an out-of-state retailer with no physical presence in the state will be deemed to have sales/use tax nexus if the retailer has an in-state affiliate and certain other requirements are met.

Cryptocurrency: A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange wherein individual coin ownership records are stored in a digital ledger or computerized database using strong cryptography to secure transaction record entries, to control the creation of additional digital coin records, and to verify the transfer of coin ownership.

Economic Presence Nexus: Economic Presence Nexus is a legal term that refers to the requirement for entities conducting business in a state, including professional service firms, to collect and pay tax on income derived in that state even though the business may lack a physical presence.

Intangible Personal Property: Intangible personal property is an item of individual value that cannot be touched or held. Intangible personal property can include any item of worth that is not physical in nature but instead represents something else of value. Examples of intangible personal property include patents, copyrights, life insurance contracts, securities investments, and partnership interests.

Limited liability company (LLC): An LLC is a corporate structure where members cannot be held accountable for the company’s debts or liabilities. This can shield business owners from losing their entire life savings if, for example, someone were to sue the company. Can be a single member (much like a sole proprietor) or a multi-member. It shares certain traits of both corporations as well as partnerships or sole proprietorships. It is not a corporation.

Marketplace Facilitators: Marketplace facilitators and sellers with at least $250,000 in total annual sales are required to collect and remit Connecticut sales tax starting December 1, 2018. Marketplace facilitators are businesses that facilitate retail sales for other sellers through a physical or online forum or platform.

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.

Physical Presence Nexus: States have looked for ways to establish nexus with companies so that they can collect sales tax. The easiest way to establish nexus is through physical presence. Physical presence includes but is not limited to: Owning or renting an office, having a mailing address, having a warehouse, having employees, maintaining inventory stores, and having an affiliate

Real Property: Real property is land and any property attached directly to it, including any subset of land that has been improved through legal human actions. Examples of real properties can include buildings, ponds, canals, roads, and machinery, among other things

Revenue: In accounting, revenue is the income that a business has from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers. Revenue is also referred to as sales or turnover. Some companies receive revenue from interest, royalties, or other fees.

Tangible Personal Property: Tangible Personal Property Tax is an ad valorem tax assessed against the furniture, fixtures and equipment located in businesses and rental property. Ad valorem is a Latin phrase meaning “according to worth”. This tax is in addition to your annual Real Estate or Property Tax.
