Washington – Amazon Begins Marketplace Sales Tax Collection January 1, 2018

Amazon began collecting sales taxes on marketplace sales (FBA sellers) on January 1, 2018. This is the first state where Amazon has conceded collections for fulfillment sellers (Amazon began collecting sales tax in all states on their own sales in April of 2017). Other jurisdictions are asserting collection responsibility for marketplace sellers while Amazon continues to influence the leveling of the playing field amidst the confusion of the nebulous nexus landscape.
