Many states have enacted economic nexus laws that require remote sellers to collect and remit sales tax if they exceed certain thresholds. If you have a physical presence in a state, you are not a Remote Seller and are required to register in that state regardless of the amount of sales.
Are you a Remote Seller? A Remote Seller is generally a seller that does not have a physical presence in a state but who sells products or services for delivery into that state.
If you are a remote seller and your sales of products for delivery into a state meet or exceed the threshold for a state, you are required to register to collect and remit sales tax for that state.
Economic nexus laws apply to any business that makes sales into states in which they have no physical presence but meet the state’s sales and/or transactions thresholds.
Items to note when reviewing the requirements:
If you know that you will be making sales into a state, you may choose to register to collect and remit that state’s sales tax at any time.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is general guidance and is not legal advice. Nothing in this chart overrides an individual state’s laws. For specific state guidance, contact that state.
This chart provides you a summary of the Remote Seller thresholds and compliance dates as of July 23, 2020.
