Are you impacted by 2019 state sales tax changes?

As a result of a Supreme Court decision, effective January 1, 2019, UltraSource will be required to charge sales tax in new states.  As a result of this Supreme Court decision, numerous states across the country are implementing economic nexus laws that will require companies like UltraSource to register and start collecting sales tax for their customers and remit these funds back to the states. If your state has already passed legislation, UltraSource will start this practice January 1, 2019. 

The specific case in question is “South Dakota versus Wayfair, Inc.” and it is having a profound impact on companies like UltraSource who sell their products nationwide via a catalog or over the internet.   The state of South Dakota petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn a long-standing rule that a company must have a “physical presence” inside of a state before the state has the legal authority to require it to collect and remit sales tax. South Dakota was successful in convincing the court to expand its authority to impose tax obligations on remote sellers via its economic nexus rule.

Economic nexus is a tax collection obligation imposed on companies that have a certain level of economic activity within a state. Unlike nexus that’s based on a physical presence, economic nexus is based entirely on sales revenue, transaction volume, or a combination of both. Like many sales tax laws, economic nexus criteria vary by state, but all aim to level the playing field between non-collecting out-of-state sellers and brick and mortar businesses.

To be in compliance with the new State laws, UltraSource has registered for sales tax collection in 16 states (Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin and South Dakota).

If you feel that some or all of the products you are currently purchasing from UltraSource are exempt from sales tax, please provide us with your States Sales Tax Exemption Certificate or complete the attached Multi-Jurisdictional Sales Tax Exemption Certificate and forward to Charissa.Klobucar@UltraSourceUSA.com so we can set up your account as tax exempt. The State tax auditors scrutinize every exemption certificate in detail to make sure it is legitimate and properly filled out so we will have to review all certificates sent to us for compliance before we can set your account to tax exempt.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in complying with the updated state tax laws.

Sincerely,

The UltraSource Team
