Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) is a program that simplifies the process of collecting sales taxes and using it for companies operating in multiple countries. If the seller does not collect and has not paid the applicable turnover tax, the seller`s customer must reject the use tax directly to the state, unless the customer can claim a valid exemption. Minnesota is a member of the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA). These increased efforts are aimed at simplifying and modernising the management of sales and user taxes in order to significantly reduce the burden of tax compliance. If the drop sender receives a fully completed exemption certificate from the seller, the drop sender shall not be liable for turnover tax on products that the drop sender has delivered to the seller`s customer in an optimised Member State. For information regarding exceptions or exempt entities of a given State, please contact that State. Under the SSUTA, qualified buyers can apply for a turnover tax exemption in Minnesota or other Member States by completing an exemption form: the online sales registration system can be used to register for turnover TAX purposes with all member states of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board in a single registration. You cannot choose the Member States in which you register, but if you assume that you do not make sales in a Member State, the registration system allows an option for you to indicate that you will not file a VAT return with that State. You can also choose for a certified service provider to record sales and use tax returns for you through the registration system.

Where a drop sender supplies a product to the seller`s customer in an optimised full Member State, the seller may use the VAT registration number of the seller`s State on the exemption certificate made available to the drop sender. The seller is not required to indicate, when purchasing resale products, a VAT registration number of the State in which the sale is made.
*To register as a Model 3, the company must have a turnover of more than $500 million per year and operate in at least five Member States. Sellers and suppliers should inquire about whether to register and collect and levy the REVENUE TAX, or check the guidelines applicable to remote sellers and marketplace sellers. Sellers registered by the Streamlined Sales Tax Registration System (SSTRS) must collect and reject revenue tax in any country where they are registered when the product sold is purchased in that state. If the seller`s customer has a certificate of exemption to the seller, the seller should not collect tax on the sale or use of that transaction. If you are requesting a sales or use tax exemption on your purchases, contact the state in which you are claiming the exemption. Indiana is one of 24 participating states working to simplify tax legislation, apply standard tax definitions, use common forms and procedures, and certify tax administration software to facilitate tax collection in full and associated Member States. A drop shipper is required to collect and transfer turnover tax, unless it is an exemption. They must either keep a fully completed exemption certificate or record and retain the standard data elements of the certificate in electronic form. (SSTGB Rule 317.1.A.10) All companies wishing to become members of the Streamlined Sales Tax must register on the following national registration page.
Upon receipt of a national registration, dor may send instructions to the company to register with the State of Indiana. . . .
