The changes to sales tax economic nexus for Pennsylvania are effective July 1, 2019. Remote sellers and marketplace facilitators that do not have a physical presence in PA must collect PA sales tax if they made over $100,000 in gross PA sales across all platforms in the previous 12 months.
Using Calendar Years to Determine Economic Nexus & Collection Periods
– calendar year 2018 sales -> collection period 7/1/19-3/31/20
– calendar year 2019 sales -> collection period 4/1/20-3/21/21
The Annual Marketplace Sales Election between collection/remittance and notice/reporting still applies to remote sellers and marketplace facilitators who do not have a physical presence in PA and made sales of at least $10,000 but less than $100,000 in the last 12 months.
