    PA Residents - get ready for the Marketplace Sales Act

    Bad news for PA Residents who shop on-line. Get the lube out. If I read correctly it looks like this takes effect this month.

    I'll bet most places are just going to send the notices out.

    Good luck enforcing it. Unless the business has a nexus in the state - an office, agent or employee conducting business there - a state has no legal means to force an out of state company to act as a tax collector for them. It gets complicated when you sell through an Amazon or Walmart that probably has a nexus there.

    Speaking of PA.....I bought a tractor there at an auction over the weekend. $1000+ in sales tax if I pick it up. Called the PA Department of Revenue today and waited 30 minutes on hold while they dealt with the 3(!) people in front of me. Asked how I would get my sales tax back if I picked it up. In the typical nasty manner of a state employee, I was informed that I could appeal to a board for a refund but there was no guarantee that I would get it back and she was unwilling to even tell me what the law in PA was with respect to sales tax liability from out-of-state purchasers. After I hung up, I said F it and got a quote from U ship for half the sales tax fee. Considering that it would cost me $200 or so in fuel and trailer rental to go get it (not to mention a day of my time), I think I made the right decision.

    i just bought a set gator blades today from Amazon-and they collected the sales tax-along with the money for the sale of them blades. so as long as sales tax is collected i should be in the clear well we all new it was coming for a while-a good thing gone-again

    i just thought of something-how could i get a out of state IP address? is that possible? and still have such items sent to my address?

    Michigan enacted, or rather started to enforce an existing statute to the same effect about 2 years ago.

    Major retailers (as mentioned above) like Amazon are in compliance, but not many others are.

    There is a section on my state income tax where we’re supposed to claim any purchases where sales tax was not collected and pay it

    I wish I could recall the article, but I had read that indeed a couple of states had sued some retailers and forced them to develop a system that would report sales back to them to enable them to tax individuals. From what I read the retailers expected more states to follow the same path so they were just going to start reporting to every state.

    There is no way states are going to continue letting us purchase anything from anywhere without paying tax, the possible income for them is huge.

    I predict state sales tax reporting for out of state purchases in every state within two years max.

    Amazon and others collect sales tax already if your item is fulfilled from a place within your state. Amazon has fulfillment centers everywhere which is how they can offer 2 day shipping that would normally take 3 to 5 days or more. Of course if you live in a place like New Hampshire who hasn't a sales tax, it matters not.

    This would seriously hurt small businesses like ours

    We already collect 6% MD sales on in state sales, and pay the MD comptroller every quarter. If we had to do that for 49 other states it would be a real PITA.

    Yep! Really sucks Ken, but I guess it was just a matter of time before they dug their greedy paws into the 'net.
    The bulk of our purchases online has been Amazon for a while now, and unfortunately we've been paying sales tax on most all of them.

    Yes, we have had the same thing on the PA State tax return for a few years it is called Use Tax. But that was impossible to enforce. This new law will have vendors not only sending the purchaser a notice of tax due but also a form gets sent to the state. So now they will have a real paper trail back to YOU for the goods that you purchased.

    That's a whole different ball game from what we've had previously.
