Guidance for out-of-state retailers with nexus
Submitted By Anita Gore
The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) announced July 1, 2011, that a special notice, clarifying the obligations of out-of-state retailers to register with the BOE and collect use tax on sales made to California residents has been posted on the BOE website, www.boe.ca.gov. Letters will be sent to potential out-of-state registrants along with a questionnaire to help them determine if they need to register with the BOE.
California Governor Jerry Brown signed budget trailer bill ABx1 28 into law on June 28, 2011. The law requires large out-of-state retailers, who previously did not have to collect and pay use tax on sales to California customers, to register with the BOE and collect use tax. The new provisions of the law added by ABx1 28 were effective immediately upon signing.
The Special Notice can be found at www.boe.ca.gov/news/pdf/l284.pdf.
