This would be a complete nightmare for me...

Posted by   + Show Post

 Seriously. If I had to do collect sales tax for every state I shipped to and submit monthly accordingly I would probably stop selling. That would take me so long. I get an average of about 200 orders a month. That's a lot of extra work for me on top of the headache I get every time I do my taxes now.

From what I understand now, it doesn't apply to businesses who make less than $1m per year.

Oh well I meant before all this. Did they agree to keep it that way? Or maybe I'm confused. Lol

It is not applicable to businesses that make less then 1 million a year, or have less.then 500 employees (I think, in the employee bit). So unless you make over a mil a year, this tax will never apply to you. It is geared for large companies like Amazon, Walmart, target, etc. Not tiny indie businesses. :) Nothing to worry about.

 OK From what I understood they were trying to change it so that it applied to everyone. No exemptions. I know that currently we were exempt but I thought that's what they were trying to change.

No, what is changing is big industry's like Amazon who don't collect & pay sales tax but make several million in a few hours will have to start paying sales tax. :) That is my understanding from reading the proposed bill and news surrounding it. It should encourage more local revenue & spending - so many people I know only order from Amazon to not pay sales tax in their state. I see this as a very good change for local economies. :)
