2019 Sales Tax Changes - Mid-Year Update
The first half of 2019 was exhilarating with respect to sales tax. Could this feverish pace of change continue? While we’re unlikely to see many more states enact economic nexus, a plethora of laws affecting remote sellers will take effect in the coming months. Furthermore, although economic nexus and marketplace facilitator laws have hogged headlines, there’s a whole lot more to sales tax than taxing out-of-state sales. States continue to broaden sales tax to new products and services, and to carve out new sales tax exemptions. Tax departments continue to develop new policies and rules in the interest of increasing or facilitating sales tax collections. And then there are rate changes. What can you expect to see change in the world of sales tax as 2019 progresses?
