Marilyn Wethekam Provides Insight on the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement

State Tax Notes 10/30/2018

An article published by State Tax Notes discusses how the Alabama remote sales tax law could be the model for other states on taxing remote sellers. Alabama's Simplified Sellers Use Tax Remittance Act created a dual system under which local jurisdictions maintain control over the sales taxes of local businesses but not over remote sellers.

State and Local Tax attorney, Marilyn Wethekam agreed that the Wayfair decision does not require states to join the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, and also that states need to provide remote vendors with some amount of simplicity.

The full article, "Alabama Remote Sales Tax Law Could Be Model for Other States," was written by Jad Chamseddine and published by State Tax Notes on October 23, 2018 for its subscribers.
