Internet Sales Taxes and Remote Sellers

internet shopperInternet Sales Taxes

The United States Supreme Court ruled in South Dakota v. Wayfair on June 21, 2018, that states can require remote sellers to collect and remit sales tax on items delivered to locations within their state regardless of physical presence.

Remote Sellers

If you sell to a state, but do not have a physical presence in that state, you are now a Remote Seller.  As a remote seller, you will need to check with each state to determine if you are required to register in that state.

Who-What-Where-When-Why

Registration requirements, small business exemptions, effective dates, and other factors all vary by state.  Some states have not published their rulings yet; and other states don’t have plans to implement a ruling in the near future.

The following chart will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.  It is not legal advice, but it is an informative reference with links to the departments of revenues and their publications on the topic.
