FBA Sales Tax Forum Discussions

Some interesting discussion regarding sales tax nexus for Fulfilled-by-Amazon sellers.

Marketplace Fairness Act (Online sales tax bill)

The Marketplace Fairness Act is a proposed bill supported by the Senate awaiting for Congressional support. It is an attempt to allow states to collect sales & use tax from remote sellers. In many states, the state nexus laws deem that hiring a warehouse in the state creates nexus in that state. Therefore if FBA Sellers have nexus due to the Amazon fulfillment Centers, then the FBA Sellers are no longer considered as a "remote seller" which could mean that the "Small Seller Exception" in the Marketplace Fairness Act does not apply to FBA Sellers who may be considered as making local sales, not remote sales. If that is the case, FBA sellers are no different than a local retailer who has to register, collect and file sales tax returns in the state in which they have nexus. The Marketplace Fairness Act offers no "Small Seller Exception" protection for sellers with nexus.
