Idaho is playing hard ball with non-collecting remote retailers. The state imposed a click-through nexus law that took effect on July 1, 2018. They quickly followed up with 500 non-compliant out-of-state sellers to remind them of their obligation to collect and remit Idaho sales tax.
What happens when sales tax enforcement in the 45 remaining states that impose state level sales taxes catch up to Idaho? Businesses are well advised that they better be ready. With potentially 300 million potential buyers across the U.S. buying from out-of-state sellers, that could be a lot of notices.
eSales tax collection falls to vendors. It always has, starting with brick and mortar sales, which have historically been taxed at the point of sale and passed on to the government. As eSales in the marketplace expanded, so too has the onus of collection for vendors.
If your business or your client’s business has a sales tax duty, you have to comply, whether you like it or not. Every tax dollar a business fails to collect is another dollar they are on the hook for.
