Six Questions to Assess your CSP Compensated Seller Status
This assessment is designed to help you determine whether you qualify as a CSP Compensated Seller, previously referred to as a “Volunteer Seller,” which reduces your sales tax risk, burden and costs, in one or more of the 24 Streamlined Sales Tax™ (SST) states.
Qualifying as a CSP Compensated Seller allows you to benefit from reduced risk, burden, and cost when you partner with Sovos as your Certified Service Provider™ (CSP) for sales tax compliance. This partnership enables you to outsource most administrative compliance processes, saving time while maintaining confidence in the accuracy of your sales tax data.
As of January 2021, marketplace facilitators and multi-level-marketing (MLM) organizations can now register for SST provided they meet the requirements outlined in this assessment.
The below legal definitions should be referenced when utilizing this assessment.

As such, consider each of the Streamlined Sales Tax states separately as you answer the following questions.
