How to denote sales tax collected by a Marketplace Facilitator in a CSV import
If your CSV data includes Marketplace* sales to customers in states with Marketplace Facilitator laws, TaxJar's Reports (and TaxJar's AutoFile, if you're enrolled in this service) will assume that your Marketplace (Amazon, Etsy and Walmart) has remitted all collected taxes associated with such sales on your behalf.
- To our understanding, the states with Marketplace Facilitator laws still require sellers to file a return and deduct the sales totals that were Marketplace collected.
- Each time we Update state Reports to reflect Marketplace sales, those same changes also apply to Marketplace sales orders uploaded via CSV.
- As long as the name of the cart in the "provider" column of your CSV file matches: 'amazon', 'etsy', or 'walmart' in a state where one of these Marketplaces collects tax automatically on your behalf, those sales will be listed in the Marketplace Sales row of the Sales Tax Reports for the Marketplace Facilitator states here. (Remember that the provider name must be lowercase in your file in order for our system to accept the import.)
- In addition, beginning August 15, 2018, if the name of the cart in the "provider" column of your CSV file matches: 'amazon', 'etsy', or 'walmart' in a state where one of these marketplaces collects tax automatically on your behalf, those sales uploaded via CSV will also be denoted with an "M" for Marketplace Sales in your Transactions page. (See image below.)
*Though your Marketplace is remitting the tax to the states, they will not file a return on your behalf as the states may require.
