What constitutes "nexus" in Texas for sales tax purposes?

If the business is warehousing its product in Texas and if it ships to Texas residents, that will likely be a sufficient nexus. Amazon.com and the Texas Attorney General recently fought over this issue and reached a compromise that resulted in Amazon.com collecting sales tax from Texas residents.
