Amazon Changes to Marketplace Tax Collections
« on: December 13, 2017, 08:30:07 AM »
Changes to Marketplace Tax Collections

Beginning on January 1, 2018, Amazon will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax on third-party seller sales shipped to Washington State.
Washington is the first state to enact legislation requiring online marketplaces, like Amazon, to collect sales tax on behalf of their third-party sellers.
We will automatically take these actions for your Washington orders; you don’t need to update your tax collection settings or account information.

Better them than us. It would be a nightmare if we had to comply with 45 different state laws for collecting and submitting sales tax

Since amazon works almost the same way as a consignment shop (especially for those that use FBA) they really should do the filing on behalf of sellers for EVERY state in which Amazon has a physical presence, even the seller's home state. When I do FBA, I'm not warehousing the item, I'm not the one handling the $ in the transaction, and I'm not the one delivering the item to the seller.
