Amazon to Start Collecting Sales Tax in Nevada

Send to Kindle

Nevada governor Brian Sandoval announced today that Nevada and Amazon have reached an agreement regarding Amazon collecting sales tax in the state.

This means that the state will reap roughly an extra $16 million in taxes each year. Amazon will begin collecting the tax starting January 1, 2014, or if/when a federal online sales tax law is enacted (whichever comes first).

You can read more here on the Nevada News Bureau website.

Amazon customers in Colorado, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont currently pay sales tax. A few other states have passed resolutions similar to Nevada’s that have yet to go into effect.
