The Senate on Monday sent the governor legislation that would make several tax code changes, including requiring out-of-state online sellers to collect sales and use taxes from in-state purchasers.

The Senate voted to 31-3 to approve Senate Bill 576 by Sen. Bart Hester, R-Cave Springs, after concurring with the House-approved amendments to the bill.

Under SB576, out-of-state remote sellers without a physical presence in the state would be required to collect and remit sales and use taxes on annual sales of more than $100,000 from products and services delivered into Arkansas, the state Department of Finance and Administration said of the bill. Alternatively, such sellers would be required to collect sales and use taxes if they sold products and services for delivery in Arkansas on at least 200 separate transactions.
