Eight local governments in Alaska have enacted ordinances implementing the Alaska Remote Seller Sales Tax Commission’s Uniform Sales Tax Code. They include: Juneau, Wasilla, Kenai Peninsula Borough, Kenai, Seward, Soldotna, Homer and Seldovia.
Remote sellers and marketplace facilitators doing business in these locations are required to collect and remit sales tax if their statewide gross sales delivered into Alaska within the previous calendar year meets or exceeds $100,000 or they complete 200 or more transactions.
The Commission has established a 30 day grace period for impacted sellers. For these eight localities, this means that sellers have until April 1, 2020 to comply.
More localities are sure to follow the lead of these 8 pioneers.
