Tax Law

Tennessee legislature passes marketplace facilitator legislation

The Tennessee General Assembly passed S.B. 2182 on March 19 and the measure awaits execution by the Governor. The bill would require marketplace facilitators to collect and remit tax on behalf of their third-party sellers. Specifically, marketplace facilitators that made or facilitated total sales to consumers in the state of more than $500,000 in the previous year would be required to collect and remit sales and use tax on third-party sales. The bill would exclude from the definition of a marketplace facilitator certain delivery network companies facilitating local sales and deliveries and would allow for waivers and remittance agreements between the facilitator and seller under certain circumstances. The bill would take effect on October 1.
