Streamlined Sales Tax Updates
- Oct 14, 2014 | Gail Cole
A number of Streamlined Sales Tax states have updated their state taxability matrices in recent months. Such changes are usually akin to dotting i’s and crossing t’s: states correct errors, update citations, and delete duplicates. The Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board (SSTGB) posts updates on its website once they have been reported by the states.
Vermont, for example, has changed several sections “to reflect that all food is exempt from tax.” Among other items, Arkansas added a statute and rule reference to the Sales Tax Holiday section introduction box. West Virginia added a code reference.
States that have made recent taxability matrix changes include but are not limited to (listed with effective date of changes):
- Arkansas, 9.19.2014
- Kentucky, 8.1.2014
- Nevada, 10.1.2014
- New Jersey, 10.10.2014
- Tennessee, 8.1.2014
- Vermont, 10.1.2014
- Washington, 9.5.2015
- West Virginia, 8.1.2014
The Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board was created “to simplify and modernize sales and use tax administration in order to substantially reduce the burden of tax compliance.”
