The Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board (SSTGB), the State and Local Advisory Council (SLAC), Executive Committee and Business Advisory Council (BAC) will meet on May 14 - 16, 2024 at the Embassy Suites Old Market in Omaha, NE.  You may want to come early or stay late to make sure you have plenty of time to visit the world-famous Omaha Zoo, the Old Market Dining and Entertainment District where our hotel is located and/or Charles Schwab Field which is home to the College World Series!

Member state and non-member state officials, legislators and the business community are invited to attend, provide input and share ideas on how to make the administration of sales and use taxes throughout the country simpler and more uniform.  The Governing Board strongly encourages the attendance of each member state’s appointed Governing Board Delegates (legislative and administrative) to represent their individual states and vote on various changes being considered.
