Interpretation Request relating to nasal strips Public Comment Period

Nov 11, 2016 Pursuant to Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board Rule 902, this message shall serve as official notice of the commencement of the 60-day public comment period for the Interpretation Request relating to nasal strips. 

Interpretation Request relating to nasal strips

On November 10, 2016, the Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee (CRIC) voted to accept the Interpretation Request submitted by Mr. Steve Claflin from Sovos Compliance and issue a recommended interpretive opinion on the question of whether nasal strips are “prosthetic devices” as defined in the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA)?  If the nasal strips are not “prosthetic devices” are they “not defined” under the SSUTA?

The Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee may hold a hearing on this request any time after the 60-day public comment period which expires on January 9, 2017.  The hearing will take place at CRIC’s regularly scheduled meeting on January 19, 2017 at 10 am central. A reminder notice will be sent out at least 10-days prior to the hearing.

Please email any public comments on this interpretation request to craig.johnson@sstgb.org, no later than Monday, January 9, 2017. Any public comments received will be posted to the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board’s website.

If you have any questions concerning this, please feel free to contact me.

Call for Final Comments – Limited Power-of-Attorney/Agent Authorization Disclosed Practices

Nov 8, 2016 Sent on behalf of Alison Jares, Chair, State and Local Advisory Council (SLAC)

Dear SLAC Members:

As the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board SLAC Chair, I am calling for final comments on the new draft tax practices for disclosure titled Limited Power of Attorney/Agent Authorization (SL16033), as provided in Rule 335 – Tax Administration Practices.  These practices will be noticed for a vote at the December 16, 2016 Governing Board teleconference meeting. Comments should be submitted by November 30, 2016.

In addition, as the SLAC Chair, I have scheduled a full SLAC meeting by teleconference on December 13, 2016 at 2 pm central to:

· Discuss these practices along with any comments received,
· Review the draft form (SL16003A03); and
· Review the draft showing how these disclosed practices would be shown on the online matrix (SL16034). 

If you have comments with respect to any of these documents, please provide those comments by November 30, 2016.  If you do not have any comments related to the disclosed practice or the form itself and did not previously respond indicating if your state would or would not be able to accept the draft form as is, please send a message indicating if your state would or would not be able to accept the form as is.

Please email your comments and responses to the SLAC Chair, Alison Jares at alison.jares@state.sd.us and Vice Chair, Christie Comanita at ccomanita@azdor.gov.

A review of the comments received during this comment period will be discussed during the SLAC teleconference meeting scheduled for:

Date:               December 13, 2016
Time:               2 pm central
Location:         By Teleconference (1-303-586-4497 pass code 811369#)

Thank you!
