Remote Seller Guidance

Remote Seller Compliance Date: 10/1/2018

Remote Seller Thresholds:
Gross sales exceed $100,000 or 200 or more separate transactions in the previous or current year

Additional Remote Seller Information: The annual threshold amounts include sales into Wisconsin by the remote seller on behalf of other sellers and sales made by another seller on the remote seller's behalf.

The previous and current year is based on the remote seller's taxable year for federal income tax purposes.

A remote seller that does not qualify for the small seller exception but only makes nontaxable sales in Wisconsin is not required to register for Wisconsin sales or use tax.

Note:  Effective December 16, 2018, Wisconsin sales and use tax statutes were amended (2017 Wis. Act 368) to provide the small seller exception by law. Prior to this law change, the small seller exception was provided by rule.
