Pennsylvania Announces New Post-Wayfair Sales Tax Collection Requirements for Out-Of-State Retailers

January 14, 2019 Daniel Kostrzewa

In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Pennsylvania will soon require certain out-of-state retailers to collect and remit sales tax on sales into Pennsylvania. Beginning July 1, 2019, out-of-state retailers are required to collect Pennsylvania state sales tax if their gross sales into Pennsylvania exceed $100,000 during the previous twelve months.

These new economic nexus rules do not replace the provisions of Act 43 of 2017 (Marketplace Sales Act). Out-of-state retailers with sales into Pennsylvania of $10,000 or more, but that do not exceed  $100,000, must still make an election to either collect and remit Pennsylvania state sales tax or comply with detailed notice and reporting requirements.
