A reminder, Saturday is the yearly Homecoming Festival in the streets out front so parking will be impossible anywhere nearby as they block off the streets for bands, venders, facepainting, thousands of visitors, a tractor parade, etc..... If you need to pick up and don't want to fight the crowd's hit us up today or Sunday. If you do want to pick up, order today and let me know you'll be picking up tomorrow so it can be packed tonight and waiting for you.
If you're in the Blackstone area and get the newspaper delivered, next week you'll be getting a FREE copy of DC's Year of the Villain #1 Bamf Comics Variant!!!! Keep your eye's out for it. It's Poopoos first cover!!
We've gotten more Sales Tax updates in and Florida is the biggest State still waiting to be heard from. For now we're going to remove the 10 Item Minnimum although it may have to be reinstalled near the end of the year for some States and some may end up not serviced completely for the rest of the year to remain under those States Minnimums not to have to collect.
UPDATE: On May 3, 2019, Iowa removed its 200-sale threshold for remote sellers, marketplace facilitators, and referrers through new enacted legislation. With this change, remote sellers will only be subject to the $100,000 threshold. The change is effective July 1, 2019. (H.F. 779, Laws 2019, effective July 1, 2019)
Oklahoma Enacts Changes to Economic Nexus Provisions
Effective Date: November 1, 2019
Threshold: $100,000 in aggregate sales of TPP (for remote sellers only) excluding marketplace sales where marketplace collects tax
(Sounds like we don't have to add sales from E-bay into our calculations since E-Bay will be collecting the Sales Tax.)
Texas Authorizes State Comptroller to Establish Uniform Local Tax Rate for Remote Sellers
Texas has enacted legislation that authorizes the state comptroller to establish a single uniform tax rate for remote sellers to collect and remit local sales and use taxes. The legislation takes effect on October 1, 2019, the same date that the state’s economic nexus legislation will begin to be enforced. Remote sellers can opt into the uniform local tax rate established by the Comptroller instead of collecting and remitting taxes at the different rates imposed by the localities in which they make sales. A remote seller who elects to use the single local use tax rate must notify the comptroller of the election before using that rate. The election applies to all sales of taxable items made by the remote seller unless the remote seller revokes the election by notifying the comptroller. The rate will be determined annually based on the estimated average rate of local sales and use taxes imposed during the preceding state fiscal year by dividing the total amount of net local sales and use taxes remitted by the total amount of net state sales and use taxes remitted and rounding to the nearest quarter percent. The rate to be effective October 1 to December 31, 2019 will be 1.75%.
(If I'm reading this one correct it means we can elect to only charge one rate for all sales but we have notify them and that rate will change some year to year. With no Transaction count requirement Texas should be well above expected sales at $500,000 limit to qualify and easier to deal with if we do.)
Due to lessening of some of the key States requirements we dropped the minnimum order requirement for now although borderline states may end up barred entirely at the end of the year if they're getting close to the limits. We've structured the new shipping rates to encourage you to place less frequent larger orders to help avoid this.
