About 500 new online retailers have signed up with the North Dakota Tax Commission to begin remitting sales taxes since a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June allowed states to force collections.
State Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger, in Minot Wednesday to speak to the Golden K Kiwanis, said his office continues to sign up merchants ahead of an Oct. 1 deadline.
“We expect in the next few weeks we are going to have a lot more registrants,” he said. “There’s many, many more calls that we have taken. We have allocated a lot of our staff to registration and sales tax compliance.”
His office will be tracking the signup of about 1,000 major retailers and will be reaching out to those that haven’t contacted the state by Oct. 1.
