Kansas Sales Tax Filing Update October 2019: Marketplace Facilitator Laws
In 2019, Kansas proposed a law to require Marketplaces to collect and remit sales tax on sales facilitated through the marketplace. This law has not yet passed and therefore marketplaces are not required to collect and remit for sellers.
- Marketplaces can voluntarily comply and register as a marketplace facilitator with the Kansas Department of Revenue.
- Remote sellers still have an obligation to register and file according to Kansas' economic nexus laws effective October 1, 2019. In-state sellers are subject to state nexus laws.
As of April 2020, we still have not yet received confirmation that these carts currently supported as Marketplace Facilitators in TaxJar's Reporting have voluntarily registered.
- Therefore, your Amazon, eBay, etsy and Walmart sales will not be reflected under the marketplace category in your state report.
- Our Kansas Reports currently allow for customers to denote voluntary marketplace exemptions via CSV import.
We are monitoring for updates regarding marketplace facilitator regulation for Kansas.
Our team is investigating to determine how state changes may affect sellers. We will update this article with more details as our research team receives more specific confirmation and guidance from the state's DOR as well as the currently supported Marketplace Facilitators.
Please review general information regarding Marketplace Facilitators and how your TaxJar Sales Tax Reports support these changes here in our FAQ.
