Tennessee recently enacted legislation requiring marketplace facilitators that meet certain thresholds to collect tax on behalf of their marketplace sellers. Marketplace facilitators must collect tax when they facilitate total sales of more than $500,000 to consumers in Tennessee during the previous 12 months. Additionally, marketplace facilitators must source sales of tangible personal property on their marketplace to the destination location. The new legislation takes effect October 1, 2020.
