Amazon to Collect and Pay Sales Tax For all NJ Sales

November 4th, 2018 by Skip McGrath

Tax collection for orders shipped to New Jersey State – Effective November 1, 2018

Based on changes to New Jersey State tax law, Amazon will begin calculating, collecting, and remitting sales and use tax for all orders shipped to customers in New Jersey on November 1, 2018.

Your existing tax calculation settings, order details, and payments reporting will update automatically to reflect this change. No action to your tax settings or seller account is required.

Answers to common questions are available in the Marketplace Tax Collection FAQ. Consider working with your tax advisor to determine any ongoing tax remittance and reporting obligations your business might have.

As time goes on you will see more and more of this.  Eventually I expect Amazon to collect and pay taxes for all states

So do we have to get tax numbers in all of these states and still file even though Amazon is collecting?

If Amazon takes this over then you will only need a number for your home state.

My guess is Amazon and other sites will probably end up doing this for all states, I really wish they would hurry up and do it!!

Some State legislatures don’t meet very often –so it could be a while before all the states pass laws and negotiate with Amazon
