    Georgia to Require Online Retailers to Collect and Remit Sales Tax

    Posted on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 @ 11:21 AM

    We offer SureTax® eCommerce, a cloud based, real-time ecommerce tax calculation solution - so we keep an interested eye on the latest state "Amazon Tax" laws.

    In an effort to collect tax from online retailers, states continue to pass Amazon Laws.  Georgia, our home state, is now requiring online retailers to collect and report sales tax.  Georgia's new Amazon Law went into effect Jan. 1 and affects online stores that don’t have a store or a warehouse in the state, but use ads on Georgia-based websites as a gateway to their own sites.

    This law is targeted towards Amazon and others.  Amazon is expect to pull ads from sites that meet this requirement.

    With an increasing number of Amazon Laws in place, and the Main Street/Marketplace Fairness Acts on the horizon, online retailers should have a strategy in place for calculating, collecting and remitting sales tax.
