Idaho Proposes Economic and Marketplace Nexus Legislation
As one of the last holdouts to join every other state with a sales tax, Idaho has proposed economic and marketplace nexus legislation for remote retailers. If passed, the legislation would take effect June 1, 2019. The Idaho House is considering two bills, H.B. 250 and H.B. 239, that would amend and add to existing law to define terms and to provide for the powers and duties of remote retailers and marketplace facilitators regarding the collection of Idaho sales tax.
H.B. 250 provides that on and after June 1, 2019 (H.B. 239 lists July 1, 2019), a remote retailer that lacks physical presence in the state must register to collect tax if, in the previous or current calendar year, the retailer has:
Cumulative gross receipts from sales delivered into Idaho that exceed $100,000
Under both bills, marketplace facilitators will be required to register with the state and collect, report, and pay state sales and use taxes on any retail sales facilitated by the marketplace provider. Marketplace providers without physical presence in Idaho must register once the combined total of its own sales and any sales it facilitates on behalf of its sellers exceed the $100,000 threshold. (H.B. 250, as introduced in the Idaho House of Representatives on March 7, 2019 and H.B. 239, as introduced in the Idaho House of Representatives on March 5, 2019)
Posted on March 12, 2019

I don't see any mention of counting individual transactions which should exempt most CCL sellers if it's a $100,000 threshold.

The facilitators inclusion provision of HB 239 may or may not apply to CCL directly depending on the final wording and thresholds and their interprtations. As many as 20 states appear to be trying to put in Facilitator provisions at this time according to

This month, Idaho – one of the last holdouts to join every other state with a sales tax – proposed economic nexus legislation. The Idaho legislation also includes marketplace nexus provisions, which is in line with the biggest 2019 sales tax trend across the states: new requirements for marketplace facilitators. More than 20 states are currently considering marketplace facilitator measures. We'll continue to keep you updated as legislation moves forward!

Those are quotes from the Sales tax Institutes e-mail updates.

Facilitator laws in simple terms appear to be aimed at having marketplace providers like Amazon, E-Bay, CCL and others if they meet specific criteria different for each State be in a position where they HAVE to collect, file and pay Sales Tax themselves for each sale their platform facilitates irregaurdless of the individual stores qualifying to do so or not.

More to come.

Last I'm going to talk about this.

I just think it's funny that you are the only one making such a big deal about this.

I think if it was that big of a deal CCL would've already done something & you would see more stores complaining about it.



I'm not sure if this will have much of an effect on many CCL stores or not, but often times people don't complain until after it does. We'll probably have a better idea about it this time next year when it's too late......


monidaw is not exactly wrong... he is right to be concerned! Is he being a bit 'Paul Revere' about it? Sure. Again, I do not think he is wrong.

I PAY someone to do make that determination. My accountant is available to answer those questions for me, and how they apply to me.

My accountant does my taxes and makes suggestions on the best strategy to handle it. I am not the only small internet biz this firm has, so advice is plentiful.

If it turns out CCL is not compliant with what they need to do for us I have a Tax attorney I can pay if I need to.

Laws are laws, but some are unenforceable, which may happen here. I'm not going to spend TIME, the thing that costs the MOST to me, dealing with an issue in flux.

This is not a CRISIS, the 'sky is not going to fall' and we are all not going to be imprisoned for tax evasion.

Should CCL do something about it? Maybe they are. They are a 'MANAGE BY CRISIS' company, so if it is important to THEM, it will get addressed.

Things like a Dropdown box requires management, which requires $$$ and frankly, I personally don't need it.

Maybe getting PAYPAL to work better within the software or making the data transactions and pages secure would be a better thing to BANG the drum about.

If monidaw feels this is the way that will fix the problem for him, then I say let him. It's his time, and the worst that could happen is it gets done properly.

Virginia Enacts Economic Nexus Provisions for Remote Sellers
Effective Date: July 1, 2019
Threshold: $100,000 or 200 or more separate retail sales transactions
Measurement Date: The previous or current calendar year
Includable Transactions: Retail sales
When You Need to Register Once You Exceed the Threshold: Next transaction
Virginia has enacted economic nexus provisions for remote sellers and marketplace facilitators, effective July 1, 2019. A seller is deemed to have sufficient activity within Virginia to require registration if the seller, in the previous or current calendar year:
Receives more than $100,000 in gross revenue from retail sales in the Commonwealth; or
Engages in 200 or more separate retail sales transactions
These collection requirements for remote sellers do not apply to retail sales transactions occurring before July 1, 2019. However, transactions occurring before July 1, 2019 may be included in the calculation of gross revenue or retail sales transactions towards the threshold, as the measurement is “previous or current calendar year.”
The Virginia Department of Taxation will develop guidelines to implement these provisions, including the creation of a waiver. (S.B. 1083, Laws 2019)


That doesn't affect me directly since I already collect Sales Tax for VA Transactions. This one though appears worded to begin with transaction 201 instead of like some States retroing back the first 200 transactions. The previous transaction will count towards the 200 even if they occur before July 1.

Virginia Enacts Marketplace Nexus Provisions
Virginia has enacted marketplace nexus provisions for marketplace facilitators, effective July 1, 2019. Marketplace facilitators will be required to register to collect and remit sales tax on behalf of its marketplace sellers if the facilitator engages in certain activities on a marketplace platform and exceeds the state’s economic nexus threshold.
A marketplace facilitator is defined as a person that contracts with a marketplace seller to facilitate the sale of marketplace seller’s products through a physical or electronic marketplace operated by the facilitator. Marketplace facilitators do not include payment processor businesses whose sole activity related to marketplace sales is to handle transactions between two parties (PayPal) or platforms/forums that exclusively provide internet advertising services (Craigs List).
A marketplace facilitator is deemed to have sufficient activity within Virginia to require registration if it meets at least one requirement under each subdivision 1, 2, and 3:
It engages, either directly or indirectly, through a commonly controlled person in any of the following activities:
Transmitting or communicating an offer or acceptance between a purchaser and a marketplace seller;
Owning or operating the infrastructure, whether electronic or physical, or technology that brings purchasers and marketplace sellers together; or
Providing a virtual currency that purchasers are allowed or required to use to purchase products from the marketplace seller;
It engages in any of the following activities with respect to a marketplace seller’s products:
Payment processing;
Fulfillment or storage;
Listing products for sale;
Setting prices;
Branding sales as those of the marketplace facilitator; or
Providing customer service or accepting or assisting with returns or exchanges; and
It establishes economic nexus through either of the following activities:
Facilitates sales in Virginia that, in the aggregate, generate more than $100,000 in gross revenue based on sales for either the previous or current calendar year; or
Facilitates 200 or more separate retail sale transactions in the previous or current calendar year.
To determine the amount of a marketplace facilitator’s gross revenue and number of retail sales transactions, all sales made by marketplace sellers using the facilitator’s platform are included. If the marketplace facilitator does not have physical presence in Virginia and has both facilitated and made direct sales into the state, both types of sales will be considered to determine whether the facilitator has established economic nexus.
The marketplace nexus provisions shall not apply to any retail sales transactions occurring before July 1, 2019. However, transactions occurring before July 1, 2019 may be included in calculating sales and revenue towards the economic nexus threshold since the rule is “previous or current calendar year.” (S.B. 1083, Laws 2019)
Posted on March 28, 2019


This is also worded to sound like it directly applys to CCL transactions and should have CCL collecting, Filing and paying the Sales Tax. I'll check with the State myself to see if I have to collect for CCL Sales directly or whether they think CCL should and to see if there's any chance they would come after the sellers if CCL doesn't.

Many States seem to be actively seeking those trying to avoid it.

Florida
Economic nexus legislation for remote sellers not yet enacted
State Activity:
S.B. 1112 – would adopt a threshold of $100,000 or 200 transactions and require marketplace providers to collect tax effective July 1, 2019 (Given a favorable report from the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee on March 11, 2019, now in Finance and Tax)

Florida is getting closer but not there yet. That's the biggest one I'm still worried about.

The California legislature has passed AB-147 to increase the state's economic nexus threshold from $100,000 or 200 transactions to $500,000. The bill also implements marketplace facilitator collection requirements.


That's huge if they've dropped the transaction count!!!! Dancing They were by far the worst of the States to comply with.

April Sales Tax Updates:
Nebraska Codifies Economic Nexus and Enacts Marketplace Nexus Legislation
Effective April 1, 2019, Nebraska has enacted legislation with economic and marketplace nexus provisions. The legislation codifies Nebraska’s administrative position, effective January 1, 2019 and creates new requirements for marketplace facilitators. A remote seller or a multivendor marketplace platform (marketplace facilitator) is required to collect and remit Nebraska sales and use tax if it either:
Made or facilitated total retail sales (per specific legislation) of property or services subject to sales tax in Nebraska exceeding $100,000 in the previous or current calendar year; or
Made or facilitated retail sales in Nebraska in 200 or more separate transactions in the previous or current calendar year.
For purposes of calculating the threshold, remote seller should include sales they make through a multivendor marketplace platform. Note that Nebraska had previously issued guidance on July 27, 2018 indicating that remote sellers meeting an economic nexus threshold of $100,000 or 200 transactions were required to collect and remit Nebraska sales and use tax effective January 1, 2019.
Remote sellers, including multivendor marketplace platforms, must obtain a sales tax permit and begin collecting and remitting Nebraska sales tax on April 1, 2019 if they exceeded the threshold amount in 2018 or in the first two months of 2019.
Remote sellers, including multivendor marketplace platforms, who exceed the threshold in March 2019 or later in 2019 must obtain a sales tax permit and begin collecting and remitting Nebraska sales tax on or before the first day of the second calendar month after the threshold(s) are exceeded. Affected retailers will also be subject to the Local Option Revenue Act and shall collect and remit the sales tax due under the act.

Short version, places like E-Bay and anywhere that introduces buyers to sellers are now required to collect Sales Tax.

Arkansas Enacts Economic and Marketplace Nexus Legislation
Effective Date: July 1, 2019
Threshold: $100,000 or 200 or more separate transactions
Measurement Date: Previous or current calendar year
Includable Transactions: Gross sales
When You Need to Register Once You Exceed the Threshold: Next transaction
Under an emergency clause, Arkansas has enacted economic and marketplace nexus legislation, effective July 1, 2019. Remote sellers and marketplace facilitators that sell or facilitate the sale of tangible personal property, taxable services, a digital code, or specified digital products into Arkansas are required to collect and remit sales and use tax if, in the previous or current calendar year, the remote seller or marketplace facilitator had:
$100,000 in aggregate sales; or
200 transactions
The new requirement to collect and remit sales or use tax will not be applied retroactively.
The legislation defines a “remote seller” as a person that does not maintain a place of business in Arkansas but makes sales into the state that are subject to tax.
A “marketplace facilitator” is defined as a person that facilitates the sale of tangible personal property, taxable services, a digital code or magazine, or specified digital products by listing or advertising the products/services previously listed for sale in a forum. Marketplace facilitators either directly or indirectly facilitate payments between purchasers and sellers. The legislation also repeals the previous provisions requiring sellers to collect tax based on affiliated relationships and payments of referral fees which are often referred to as “click-through” nexus. (S.B. 576, Laws 2019, Effective July 1, 2019)


We get California back though so that's great news!!!

Another herd of States are now taking the responsibility for collecting Sales Tax out of the hands of individual stores and into places that introduce comic book buyers, to sellers and or have subscription services. The wording varies from State to State.

More to come I'm sure!!!

Hawaii Enacts Legislation with Marketplace Nexus and Notice & Reporting Requirements Provisions
Hawaii has enacted legislation with marketplace nexus and notice and reporting requirements provisions, effective January 1, 2020. Per the legislation, a marketplace facilitator is considered the seller of tangible personal property, intangible property, or services for Hawaii sales and use tax purposes. The seller on whose behalf the sale is made shall be deemed to be making a sale at wholesale and subject to the wholesale rate of tax (0.005%). A marketplace facilitator’s gross income or gross proceeds include receipts from sales on behalf of other sellers.
Per the legislation, “marketplace facilitator” is defined as any person who sells or assists in the sale of tangible personal property, intangible property, or services on behalf of another seller by:
Providing a forum, whether physical or electronic, in which sellers list or advertise tangible personal property, intangible property, or services for sale; and
Collecting payment from the purchaser, either directly or indirectly through an agreement with a third party.

Effective January 1, 2020, any person other than a marketplace facilitator who provides a forum, whether physical or electronic, in which sellers list or advertise tangible personal property, intangible property, or services for sale and takes or processes sales orders can elect to be deemed the seller or comply with the following notice and reporting requirements:
Post a conspicuous notice on its forum informing purchasers intending to purchase tangible personal property, intangible property, or services for delivery to or use in Hawaii that they are required to pay use tax if the sale is made from an unlicensed seller;
Provide a written notice to each purchaser at the time of each sale of tangible personal property, intangible property, or services for delivery to or use in Hawaii that the purchaser may be required to remit use tax directly to the Hawaii Department of Taxation (DOT) and provide instructions for obtaining additional information from the DOT on whether and how to remit use tax to the DOT; and
No later than the twentieth day of the fourth month following the close of the taxable year, submit a report to the DOT that includes, with respect to purchasers of tangible personal property, intangible property, or services delivered to or used in Hawaii, the following information:
The purchaser’s name, billing address, and mailing address;
The address in Hawaii to where tangible personal property was delivered to the purchaser (only if tangible personal property was purchased);
The aggregate dollar amount of the purchaser’s purchases from the seller; and
The name and address of the seller.
Anyone who fails to comply with the notice and reporting requirements and has not elected to be deemed the seller will assessed a penalty of $1,000 if the failure is not for more than one month, with an additional $1,000 for each additional month or fraction thereof during which the failure continues, not to exceed $12,000 total.
The legislation also amends the definition of “import” to include the sale of tangible personal property, intangible property, or services by a marketplace facilitator with a valid license on behalf of an unlicensed seller for delivery to or use by a purchaser in Hawaii.

Idaho Enacts Economic and Marketplace Nexus Legislation
Effective Date: June 1, 2019
Threshold: $100,000

Measurement Date: Previous or current calendar year
Includable Transactions: Gross sales
When You Need to Register Once You Exceed the Threshold: Next transaction (state doesn’t specify)
Idaho has enacted legislation with economic nexus and marketplace nexus provisions, effective June 1, 2019. Any retailer without a physical presence in Idaho that has, in the previous calendar year or the current calendar year, cumulative gross receipts from sales delivered into Idaho in excess of $100,000 is required collect and remit Idaho state-level sales and tax, but not local taxes.
Per the legislation, marketplace facilitators without a physical presence in Idaho are required to collect and remit Idaho state-level sales and tax on retail sales they facilitate once the combined total of its own sales and any sales it facilitates for retailers or authorized agents of the retailer exceeds $100,000.
A marketplace facilitator that has physical presence in Idaho but has not previously facilitated a retail sale in the state will have 45 days to comply with these provisions upon completion of the marketplace facilitator’s first facilitated retail sale in Idaho.
A marketplace facilitator is not liable for failure to file, collect, and remit sales and use taxes if the marketplace facilitator demonstrates that the error was due to incorrect or insufficient information provided by the retailer or an authorized agent of the retailer. This does not apply if the marketplace facilitator and the retailer or authorized agent of the retailer are related parties.
A class action lawsuit may not be brought against a marketplace facilitator in Idaho that arises from or is in any way related to an overpayment of sales or use tax collected on sales facilitated by the marketplace facilitator, regardless of whether the claim is characterized as a tax refund claim. The state tax commission may waive penalties and interest if a marketplace facilitator seeks liability relief and the state tax commission finds that a reasonable cause exists.
Marketplace facilitators must obtain a separate seller’s permit and collect and remit under that separate permit for state-level sales and use taxes collected on transactions facilitated for third-party sellers.
The legislation defines “marketplace facilitator” as a person that contracts with sellers to facilitate for consideration, including the deduction of fees from a transaction, the sale of the seller’s products through a physical or electronic marketplace operated by the person, and engages:
Directly or indirectly, through one or more affiliated persons, in any of the following:
Transmitting or otherwise communicating the offer or acceptance between the buyer and seller;
Owning or operating the infrastructure, electronic or physical, or the technology that brings buyers and sellers together;

Providing a virtual currency that buyers are allowed or required to use to purchase products from the seller; or
Software development or research and development activities related to any of the activities listed below, if the activities are directly related to a physical or electronic marketplace operated by the person or an affiliated person; and
In any of the following activities, with respect to the seller’s products:
Payment processing services;
Fulfillment or storage services;
Listing products for sale;
Setting prices;
Branding sales as those of the marketplace facilitator;
Taking orders; Advertising or promotion; or
Providing customer service or accepting or assisting with returns or exchanges.
Note that Idaho had previously enacted click-through nexus legislation effective July 1, 2018 pertaining to:
Any retailer that has an agreement, directly or indirectly, with one or more persons engaged in business in Idaho which, for a commission or other consideration, the persons refer potential purchasers to the retailer directly, whether by a link on an internet website, written or oral presentation, or otherwise; and
The cumulative gross receipts from sales by the retailer to purchasers who are referred by all retailers engaged in business in Idaho with such an agreement are greater than $10,000 during the immediately preceding 12 months.

The Kansas Department of Revenue has announced new rules that are set to go into effect on October 1st of this year that: "any 'remote seller' doing business with Kansas residents must register with the department, collect state and local sales taxes and send that money to the state."

No minimum transaction or minimum total sales amount.

Kansas is desperate for any source of revenue after Gov. Brownback gutted the state budget with tax cuts (especially for the rich) and then made budget cuts so racist in the education department that the state Supreme Court stepped in and forced them to be reversed.
