In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, Texas-based businesses selling items or services into other states may be required to collect taxes for those states. Additionally, remote sellers who were previously not required to collect and remit sales and use tax may have to begin collecting Texas tax on their sales into Texas in late 2019. Generally, a “remote seller” is a seller that does not have a physical presence in a state, but who sells products or services for delivery into that state.
The Comptroller’s office is currently updating sales and franchise tax rules to provide details about remote seller tax responsibilities. We are not applying the Wayfair decision to additional taxes at this time, and any new tax responsibilities will be prospective.
