The following CSP's systems are certified by the Streamlined States, but they are not currently offering free services under Streamlined's CSP program.
If you qualify as a “CSP-compensated seller” in a Streamlined Member state, as defined in section D.2.(b) of the Certified Service Provider (CSP) contract, the state will compensate the CSP for providing the software and services necessary to:
Under the CSP contract, the CSP will not charge you for these services provided for the Streamlined Member states in which you are a “CSP-compensated seller.” The CSP may charge for these services in states you do not meet the criteria as a "CSP-compensated seller" or for services in addition to those provided under the Streamlined contract.
To receive free CSP services in a state a Seller must:
1. Register for that Streamlined Member state through the Streamlined Sales Tax Registration System;
2. Contract with a CSP for services as provided under the Sreamlined contract; and
3. Meet all the following criteria (a-e) during the 12 months prior to registration with that state:
a. no fixed place of business for more than 30 days in that state;
b. less than $50,000 of Property, as defined below, in that state;
c. less than $50,000 of Payroll, as defined below, in that state;
d. less than 25% of its total Property or total Payroll, as defined, in that state;
e. was not collecting sales or use tax in that Streamlined State as a condition for the seller or an affiliate of the seller to qualify as a supplier of goods or services to that state.
A seller will lose its “CSP-compensated seller” status in a Streamlined state if the seller is required to register in a state and no longer meets all of the above criteria (a-e) in that state.
A Multilevel marketing company or similar entity, and a marketplace facilitator, multivendor marketplace platform, or similar person may be a "CSP-compensated seller" if they meet the above criteria (a-e).
A remote seller that is only required to report and remit sales tax in a state because it meets the economic nexus threshold of that state qualifies for free CSP services in that state.
Contact the CSPs to discuss how their services would work for your business and to determine the next steps on having them provide these services to you in the Streamlined states. Be sure to ask about the services available under the CSP contract with the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board.
The CSP may charge you for these services in any Streamlined Member states in which you are not a “CSP-compensated seller” and for other services you want the CSP to provide.
