Streamlined Sales and Use Tax

What is the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement?

The Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement became effective October 1, 2005. This agreement is a multi-state simplification of varying sales and use tax laws. The agreement is the joint effort of 44 states, the District of Columbia, local governments along with members of the business community to develop measures to design and implement a system that simplifies the collection and remittance of sales and use tax between retailers and states.

Sellers who volunteer to collect and pay sales and/or use tax in the member states, may be eligible for Amnesty.

Who should take advantage of an Amnesty program?
