Amazon to collect sales tax for Nebraska and District of Columbia

Starting April 1, 2019, Amazon will collect sales tax on sales to Nebraska and District of Columbia residents.

Many states are passing legislation that requires Amazon to collect and remit sales tax on behalf of its sellers because of the Supreme Court ruling on South Dakota vs. Wayfair, also referred to as the Wayfair Decision. Read the PDF from the Supreme Court.

Take a look at the list of states where Amazon collects and remits sales taxes on behalf of its sellers.

Visit Nebraska’s Department of Revenue website for more information.

Visit the District of Columbia’s Office of Tax and Revenue website for more information.

With the addition of these two tax agencies, Amazon now collects and remits on behalf of its sellers for 11 tax agencies:

  • Alabama
  • Connecticut
  • District of Columbia
  • Iowa
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • New Jersey
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Washington

Several states will be requiring marketplaces like Amazon to collect in 2019. This includes California if AB-147 is signed. More states are likely to require marketplaces to collect and remit sales tax on behalf of their sellers.
