In the post-Wayfair era, where physical presence is no longer required to be subject to a state’s sales tax, states continue to enact sales tax economic nexus provisions for remote sellers. If you are a business selling goods into multiple states, it is important for you to keep track of your sales and transactions by state, so that once you exceed a state’s annual economic nexus threshold, you can timely register and begin to collect and remit sales tax.
Economic Nexus Requirements by State
|State||Annual Sales Threshold||And/Or||Annual Transaction # Threshold|
|Alaska (local jurisdictions only)||$100,000||Or||200|
|Arizona||$150,000 for 2020
$100,000 for 2021

- Kansas has not adopted a sales/use tax economic nexus provision. However, the Kansas Department of Revenue takes the position that a remote seller with no physical presence in Kansas is required to collect and remit applicable sales/use tax on sales delivered to Kansas, as provided under the Constitution and the laws of the United States. A conservative approach is to apply the Wayfair economic nexus standard to determine Kansas nexus, following the $100,000 annual revenue or 200 annual transactions thresholds.
