States With Internet Sales Tax 2019

What states have Internet sales tax?

Internet sales tax is a tax on Internet-based services. For many years, states argued that they were losing money by not being able to collect sales tax on Internet sales. On June 21, 2018, the US Supreme Court changed the rules for collection of sales tax by Internet-based retailers stating that individual states can require online sellers to collect state sales tax.

Any individual who sells products online should be aware of the different laws in different states. The provisions set by the states are called “Remote Seller Nexus” and vary between states. There are four different types of Nexus according to the Sales Tax Institute:

  • Click-Through Nexus requires that if a seller contracts with an individual or company in-state who refers potential customers to the retailer for a commission, the retailer is considered to have a place of business in that state.
  • Affiliate Nexus states an affiliated person of the retailer with a physical presence, or employees or agents in-state, has sufficient nexus in state to require the retailer to collect and remit sales and use taxable retail sales of tangible personal property or services.
  • Marketplace Nexus requires the marketplace facilitator to register and collect tax as a retailer if the online marketplace operates in a state and provides e-commerce infrastructure including customer service, payment processing services and marketing.
  • Economic Nexus requires an out-of-state retailer to collect sales tax once the retailer meets a certain level of sales transactions or gross receipts activity within the state. The retailer does not need to have a physical presence in that state.

Additionally, there are Notice and Reporting Requirements, which require retailers to notify buyers that they must pay and report state use tax on purchases.
