Massachusetts – to Begin Collecting Sales Tax as of Nov. 1st

SALT Report 3129 – has agreed to collect and remit Massachusetts state tax as part of an agreement announced by Governor Deval Patrick last year.  “I appreciate Amazon’s willingness to work with us to reach an agreement that will benefit both the Commonwealth’s businesses and Massachusetts taxpayers,” said Secretary of Administration and Finance Jay Gonzalez. “However, Massachusetts and other states will receive the majority of the revenue owed only when Congress passes federal legislation, and we encourage Congress to act.”
