In accordance with the Rules and Procedures of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board, Inc., attached for your review and comment is a link to the initial report detailing any known issues that may affect a state’s compliance with the requirements of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA) or its proper completion of the Certificate of Compliance or Taxability Matrix, as of August 1, 2015.  This initial report covers the following Member States: Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Utah.  Here is the link to the report: CI15007 

 Please note that if you have any comments regarding this report or the compliance by any of these 13 states with the requirements of the SSUTA, please submit your written comments to me no later than September 28, 2015.  Any such comments will be posted to the SSTGB’s website and noticed to the public.  In addition, the state(s) to which the comments apply will also have the opportunity to provide a response to those comments. 

On October 13, 2015, the Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee (CRIC) will begin reviewing each of these states’ compliance with the requirements of the SSUTA, taking into account the findings in this report and any additional comments received.  Here is a link to CRIC’s 2015 Compliance Review Timeline: CI15005 . 

It is anticipated that 3 - 5 states from this list will be reviewed on each of the dates October 13, October 15, October 20 and October 22.  Chairman Myles Vosberg will prepare a schedule that identifies specifically which states will be reviewed on which dates.  Once finalized, that schedule will be sent to the same list servs that are receiving this message, in addition to the appropriate personnel from each of the states being reviewed. 

(Note: A second report that details any known issues that may affect the remaining 11 states’ compliance (Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming) with the requirements of the SSUTA as of August 1, 2015, will be provided by September 18, 2015 and comments on those states will be due by October 19, 2015.)
