Like its predecessor, 2019 continues to be a year of significant sales tax changes. Because the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of the state in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., states can now require remote sellers to collect and remit sales tax. More than 30 states and the District of Columbia have remote seller sales tax laws on the books as of December 2018. Expect more states to pursue economic nexus and/or other remote sales tax laws in the year ahead.
2019 is also showing signs of change for marketplace facilitators as states require them to shoulder more of the sales tax burden and collect tax on behalf of their third-party sellers. Even under expanded nexus provisions, many marketplace transactions currently go untaxed — states don’t want to let another year go by leaving that revenue on the table. While we can’t say for certain what changes the rest of 2019 will bring, we can share burgeoning sales and use tax trends likely to impact sales tax compliance for the remainder of the year.
