Online and Remote Seller Sales Tax Resource Center

How are states approaching the collection of unpaid sales and use tax on purchases made online or through other remote channels? Are you prepared?

The Marketplace Fairness Act. Click-through nexus. Comprehensive disclosure. Criminalization of noncompliance. These are the four main approaches that states and the federal government are considering when it comes to states collecting the sales or use tax owed by many, if not most, consumers who make online or other remote purchases. What is happening in each of these areas, and what should online retailers and other companies that engage in remote sales expect in terms of potential compliance changes?

Our sales and use tax professionals and consumer products industry team are closely following online sales tax legislation, with attention to how it affects the middle market and what you need to know in order to make sound decisions for your business.
