Internet Sales Tax Fairness — Vermont

Date: 8 Jan 2013 | posted in: Retail | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

In 2011, Vermont passed a law requiring remote sellers to collect sales tax if they make more than $100,000 in sales a year through in-state sales affiliates (such as those used by Amazon).  However, the law will not take effect until 15 other states have adopted similar laws.

The law also requires a simple notification to customers at the time of sale that they may owe Vermont taxes.
