2020 sales tax changes

6: We’ve only scratched the surface

As 2020 progresses, we’re bound to see many more sales tax changes take effect. State legislators are constantly tweaking sales and use tax laws, adding new exemptions for specific industries here, eliminating them there. We’ll likely see new exemptions for diapers, feminine hygiene products, and food in 2020, as well as new taxes on digital products, soda, and vaping products.

This report highlights the big changes but is by no means exhaustive. Be sure to read our blog for up-to-date news on all things sales tax.

Automating sales and use tax compliance is the most effective way for businesses to track and comply with the ever-changing world of sales and use tax laws.
