We’re inching ever closer to my ideal sales tax management scenario of marketplaces being responsible for collecting and remitting 100% of sales tax payments and businesses and individuals simply filing paperwork. To get us closer to my perfect world, Wisconsin announced they’ll be requiring marketplaces like Amazon to collect and remit sales tax effective October 1st. This will shift the burden from the businesses and sellers that make money on the platform, a welcome bit of news.
Wisconsin will be joining Arizona, Colorado, Texas, California, and Maine with October 1st changeovers. North Carolina will have changed over a month prior.
