On-line gross sales tax
Re: “A taxing change,” Nov. three information story
Are we insane? Beginning Dec. 1, Colorado’s new on-line gross sales tax guidelines would require on-line sellers who ship items to Colorado to gather and pay gross sales taxes for every of the state’s greater than 340 taxing jurisdictions. Altogether there are 683 potential gross sales tax combos that a web based vendor may need to cope with.
The Supreme Court docket ruling on South Dakota vs. Wayfair set a threshold of 200 gross sales or $100,000 for out-of-state sellers, not unreasonable for small sellers. Nevertheless, the edge for in-state sellers right here is one sale! This isn’t what the Supreme Court docket meant. As a Colorado resident considering beginning an Etsy enterprise, there isn’t a means I might take into account on-line gross sales to Colorado consumers.
