QuickBooks Sales Tax Rate and Rule Updates – January 1, 2020: Wayfair Updates
Beginning October 1, 2019 remote sellers exceeding annual gross retail sales or income from online sales into Arizona greater than $200,000 were required to begin collecting transaction privilege tax (TPT) if they were not already doing so. On January 1, 2020 the safe harbor threshold will drop to $150,000. As a reminder this threshold will drop again in 2021 to $100,000.
Georgia law previously required remote sellers with gross revenue exceeding $250,000 in the previous or current calendar year or 200 or more sales of tangible personal property delivered electronically or physically in Georgia in the previous or current calendar year to collect and remit sales tax. On January 1, 2020, this threshold will drop to $100,000.
Remote sellers are required to register and collect if they make sales exceeding $100,000. Previously, sellers were required to register and collect if they also made 200 or more transactions. Washington eliminated the 200 transaction threshold in March 2019. However, for prior periods October 1, 2018 through December 31, 2019, sellers with 200 or more separate transactions into Washington needed to collect.
