New Jersey Enacts Sales Tax Reforms - Taxing Remote Sellers and Marketplace Facilitators

On October 5, 2018, New Jersey's Governor Murphy signed critically important sales-tax legislation significantly expanding the list of taxpayers that are now required to collect and remit New Jersey sales tax. Under the new law (A-4496), New Jersey has joined the rapidly-growing number of states enacting "economic nexus rules" following the wake of this summer's landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of South Dakota v. Wayfair. Provided certain minimum connections exist, in addition to requiring that "remote sellers" collect and remit New Jersey sales tax, the new law also expands New Jersey's sales tax nexus rules by imposing collection and remittance obligations on "marketplace facilitators."

On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court issued perhaps the most significant state and local tax case in a generation. In Wayfair, the Court overturned decades of precedent, reversed its prior decision in Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, and abandoned its longstanding bright-line physical-presence requirement for the imposition of tax collection responsibilities on out-of-state retailers. Based on the Courts holding in Wayfair, a mere "economic" presence within a state, as opposed to a "physical" presence, is sufficient to justify taxation, provided certain minimum connections exist in the state seeking to impose the tax collection requirement.

The New Jersey statute tracks the South Dakota statute that was upheld by the Supreme Court in Wayfair. Now, under New Jersey's law, a remote seller, i.e., one lacking in-state physical presence, is now required to register, collect, and remit New Jersey sales tax if (a) the remote seller's gross revenue from delivery of tangible personal property, specified digital products, or services, in New Jersey during the current or prior calendar year, exceeds $100,000; or (b) the remote seller sold tangible personal property, specified digital products, or services for delivery into New Jersey in 200 or more separate transactions during the current or prior calendar year.

Supporters of the new state law argued that expanding the sales tax nexus rule to include out-of-state retailers, (who had historically escaped taxation under the old rules) will level the playing field between in-state retailers (who were historically the only retailers required to collect tax). The new law expanding the collection and reporting obligation takes effect on November 1, 2018, and will be applied prospectively only.

One of the great advantages of the Chamber is receiving the names and company affiliations of the people that have registered for the event the day before. I go through the list not only to see who I already know, but to attempt to make new contacts. I reach out to people either through email or LinkedIn the day before or the day after event. I feel this is a good way to achieve a "warm" introduction.
