Amazon to Collect Sales Tax on Orders Shipped to Ohio

Amazon to Collect Sales Tax on Orders Shipped to Ohio

Amazon announced it will begin collecting sales tax for orders shipped to Ohio beginning on September 1, 2019. (eBay also announced it would begin collecting sales tax from buyers in Ohio beginning September 1st.)

Amazon announcement follows:

Based on changes to Ohio state tax law, Amazon will begin calculating, collecting, and remitting sales and use tax for all orders shipped to customers in Ohio on September 1, 2019.

Your existing tax calculation settings, order details, and payments reporting will update automatically to reflect Amazon’s responsibility. Changes to your tax settings or seller account are not required based on the existing bill. If there are any significant changes, we will follow up with additional messaging. You may consider working with your tax advisor to determine if your business has any other ongoing tax remittance or reporting obligations upon enactment of Ohio House Bill 166.

Answers to many common questions are available in the Marketplace Tax Collection FAQ.

More information is also available on the Ohio legislature’s website.
