Sales Tax Changes
In accordance with the enactment of new, state sales-tax standards—and recent rulings upholding those standards—ScanSource is now required to register for sales tax in the following states:
As of January 1, 2019, ScanSource is required to—and expects to have its systems and processes updated to—collect sales tax on all shipments into those states for which a valid, state-specific resale certificate and state registration have not been obtained. A “home state” or multi-jurisdictional form will not be acceptable for these states.
As your trusted partner, we want to make sure you are aware of these changes, and have plenty of time to complete the necessary steps. You can learn more about these new tax-law changes, and how to obtain resale certificates, at the following state websites:
REGISTER AS AN OUT-OF-STATE DEALER IN
For ship-to orders to be exempt from sales tax, the following must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. A valid state (CT, HA, IL, LA, MA) resale certificate AND
2. A state (CT, HA, IL, LA, MA) registration
Once we have received these documents, we will update your files to ensure that you are not charged sales tax in the applicable states. However, if you are unable to provide us a valid, state-specific resale certificate and state registration, ScanSource will be required to collect sales tax on applicable shipments beginning January 1, 2019. We understand these changes may affect your business so, if you have any questions or concerns about this change and how it will affect your business, please reach out to your company’s tax advisor.
As always, thank you for continuing to partner with ScanSource!
