Supreme Court Online Sales Tax Ruling is Likely Not Serious for Associations Bookmark

The SCOTUS Wayfair vs. South Dakota decision handed down recently means online retailers will be required to collect sales tax from customers in individual states, even if they do not have a physical presence in those states. How does this decision impact associations? If you have a physical product that you are mailing out of state, such as books, you could be subject to sales tax collection and reimbursement. As understood by MSAE, this decision will thus require each state to adopt and approve its own legislation on the topic. This legislation is likely to include a threshold of sales for each particular state an organization seeks to do business in. For example, South Dakota could require a threshold of $100,000 in sales be received by your organization before becoming liable to submit the tax.

 It is unlikely your organization will meet this threshold. Most AMS, CRM and online shipping software packages are looking to address exactly how this decision will specifically affect your online purchasing procedures and provide reports for submission should your organization meet the sales threshold. 

MSAE will continue to monitor this newly emerging issue and share updates and changes to this policy.
