Completely Compliance Click-through and Affiliate Nexus Updates

Many states are continuing to review and establish how their state handles click-through, affiliate and economic nexus.

Rhode Island H.B. 7375: In January 2016, the Remote Sales Tax Collection Act addresses economic and affiliate nexus to include the definition of doing business as “an office, distribution facility, salesroom, warehouse, storage place, or other similar place of business, including the employment of a resident of this state who works from a home office in this state.” as well as “Engaging in, either directly or indirectly through a marketplace provider, referrer, or other third party, direct response marketing targeted at this state.” REFERENCE

Mississippi S.B. 2052: Also introduced in January 2016, Mississippi tried to redefine their definition of retailer “to include a person who facilitates the sale of tangible personal property that belongs to a third party…” However, the proposal died in committee in February. REFERENCE

South Dakota S.B. 106: Passed in March, remote sellers who electronically sell tangible personal property into South Dakota shall remit sales and use tax to the state as if the seller had physical presence in the state. Various different gross receipt thresholds must be met in order to be liable. REFERENCE
