BILL SB19-130
Position: Monitor

Concerning sales tax administration, and, in connection therewith, simplifying the collection of sales tax by retailers without physical presence and reversing the department of revenue's destination sourcing rule for Colorado retailers.

Short Title: Sales Tax Administration
Sponsors: B. Gardner / J. Rich | C. Larson

The United States Supreme Court, on June 21, 2018, decided South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., et al. , overruling 2 previous United States Supreme Court cases that stood for the rule that a state could not require an out-of-state retailer to collect sales tax if the retailer lacked physical presence in the state. Because of the Wayfair decision, states can require retailers without physical presence in the state to collect sales tax on purchases made by in-state customers so long as the sales tax system in the state is not too burdensome for the out-of-state retailer. The bill simplifies the state sales tax system for retailers without physical presence by:

The bill allows local taxing jurisdictions governed by a home rule charter to opt in by passing an ordinance, resolution, or accepting the state's administration and distribution of its local sales tax on sales made by retailers without physical presence that is collected and remitted by such sellers in accordance with the bill.
