Collecting Online Sales Tax…

By May 11, 2019 March 8th, 2020 Blog

Playing a little catch up here, but it was important that we roll this out correctly as to not shock our customers…starting on Monday, May 13th – Pink Fox will be collecting 6% tax on all retail sales.

Washington, D.C. is adapting its sales and use tax laws in response to South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. In its June 2018 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States overruled a long-standing physical presence rule, thus allowing states to tax remote sales. Like many states, the District of Columbia intends to do so.

Previously, only businesses with a physical presence in the District had an obligation to collect and remit sales tax. The Internet Sales Tax Amendment Act of 2018 requires certain persons or retailers with no physical presence in the District to collect and pay sales tax on retail sales.
