You Are Probably Registered to Collect Sales Tax in Too Many States

If you are selling on a marketplace facilitator platform (Amazon, EBay, Walmart, Etsy, etc), you may be registered to collect sales tax in too many states. Sales tax laws are constantly changing and states are making concessions for businesses doing sales strictly on marketplace facilitator platforms. Along with sales tax changes, nexus is also evolving. What caused you to get registered to collect sales tax may no longer be a factor now. While hosting different webinars and podcasts I get a lot of questions about marketplace facilitator laws. More specifically, why sellers should get registered to collect sales tax in the first place if 95% of the states have marketplace facilitator laws requiring the marketplace facilitator to collect and remit sales tax on items sold on their platforms. I invited Paul Johnson, our VP of Operations here at Peisner Johnson, to explain what is going on and what your options are.


Additional Questions Answered:

How many states could I potentially de-register to collect sales tax in?

How many states have marketplace facilitator laws?

What factors are considered when deciding whether or not to de-register to collect sales tax?

Can I de-register to collect sales tax if I sell on my own website as well?

What happens if I decide not to de-register to collect sales tax?

What if I haven't registered to collect sales tax anywhere yet, can I avoid registering to collect sales tax?

What are the consequences of not getting registered to collect sales tax if I have nexus in a state?
