Approximately 25 local governments in Alaska have signed an intergovernmental agreement establishing a Commission that will provide governance over a streamlined, single-level administration of sales tax collection and remittance. The Commission recently adopted their uniform sales tax code which includes provisions requiring remote sellers and marketplace facilitators to collect and remit sales tax if their gross statewide sales of property, products or services delivered into the state within the last calendar year meets or exceeds $100,000 or they complete 200 or more separate transactions. Member municipalities have 120 days to adopt the Alaska Remote Seller Sales Tax Code in its entirety as it pertains to collection of sales tax from remote sellers and marketplace facilitators.
