Kentucky Enacts Marketplace Legislation

On March 26, 2019, Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky signed HB 354 into law. The law requires that marketplace providers collect and remit Kentucky sales tax on all sales that the marketplace provider either makes on its own behalf or facilitates on behalf of its marketplace sellers, provided that certain economic thresholds are met. Marketplace providers will be required to collect and remit sales tax if the marketplace’s retail sales, either on its own behalf or facilitated on behalf of marketplace sellers, to purchasers in Kentucky exceed $100,000 or 200 or more separate transactions during the immediately preceding or current calendar year. These new marketplace requirements will become effective on July 1, 2019.
