STREAMLINED SALES TAX
GOVERNING BOARD, SLAC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE and BAC MEETINGS
Embassy Suites, Bloomington, MN
October 4-6, 2021
The Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board (SSTGB), the Streamlined State and Local Advisory Council (SLAC), the Executive Committee and the Business Advisory Council (BAC), will meet on October 4 - 6, 2021 at the Embassy Suites in Bloomington, MN. Member state and non-member state and local government officials, legislators and the business community are invited to attend. The Governing Board strongly encourages the attendance of each member state’s appointed Governing Board Delegates (legislative and administrative) to represent their states, vote on proposed amendments and discuss sales tax administration policies of importance to them. Non-member states and the business community members are also encouraged to attend as this is a great opportunity to share ideas and suggestions for the Governing Board to consider related to improving sales tax administration throughout the country.
The final documents to include in the meeting publication handout must be emailed to Craig Johnson no later than September 15, 2021. If the deadline is missed you should bring at least 120-copies to the meeting for distribution with the meeting publication.
