Now that it’s tax season, I’m sure everyone in Pennsylvania knows that they are to report and pay the sales tax on those taxable purchases made over the internet, toll-free numbers, mail order catalogs, etc., from out of state businesses that did not collect the PA sales tax in 2018.
That’s been the law now for a number of years, but it relied on self-reporting. I wonder what the rate of self-compliance has been.
