About Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board Inc.

The effort that became the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board began in March 2000. The goal of this effort is to find solutions for the complex in-state sales tax systems that resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court holding (Bellas Hess v. Illinois and Quill Corp. v. North Dakota) that a state may not require a seller that does not have a physical presence in the state to collect tax on sales into the state. The Court ruled that the existing system was too complicated to impose on a business that did not have a physical presence in the state. The Court said Congress has the authority to allow states to require remote sellers to collect tax.

The result of this work is the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement. This Agreement simplifies and modernizes sales and uses tax administration to substantially reduce the burden of tax compliance. The Agreement focuses on improving sales and uses tax administration systems for all sellers and all types of commerce through all of the following:

  1. State-level administration of sales and use tax collections.
  2. Uniformity in the state and local tax bases.
  3. Uniformity of major tax base definitions.
  4. A central, electronic registration system for all member states.
  5. Simplification of state and local tax rates.
  6. Uniform sourcing rules for all taxable transactions.
  7. Simplified administration of exemptions.
  8. Simplified tax returns.
  9. Simplification of tax remittances.
  10. Protection of consumer privacy.

Today twenty-four states have adopted the simplification measures in the Agreement (representing over 31 percent of the population) and more states are moving to adopt the simplification measures.

We’re hosting a special webinar next week with our partners at Avalara. The South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. Supreme Court ruling includes the biggest internet sales tax changes since 1992 and the impacts are being felt by businesses all over the United States.

South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc.

The decision effectively overturned a longstanding physical presence rule (Quill Corp. v. North Dakota) for determining when a state can make remote sellers collect sales tax. These changes are currently in effect and some businesses are having to pay sales tax as far back as Q1 2018.

What: George Padilha of Avalara discusses the implications for businesses across the US under these new rules and how to determine where your business holds economic nexus.
