Breaking News – California Sets New Sales Tax Guidelines


Do you have clients that sell within, or into California?

California will require out-of-state sellers with a certain amount of economic activity in the state to collect and remit sales tax starting April 1, 2019. Retailers meeting one of the thresholds will have to register with the CDTFA and collect and remit tax on their sales of tangible personal property to California consumers starting that date. This can impact your clients and they should know. 

Who does this affect? Any remote seller who, during the current or preceding calendar year, made/makes:

  • More than $100,000 in taxable sales in California, or
  • At least 200 separate transactions for delivery into California
