What is Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) and do they cover TaxCloud services?

The Streamlined Sales and Use tax Agreement (SSUTA) is an agreement among 24 states to simplify and standardize sales tax calculation, collection, and remittance. The Streamline Program (SST) subsidizes costs of using any of their Certified Service Providers (CSP), like TaxCloud, and the use of the CSP’s services in member states where the seller meets the eligibility requirements.

How does the cost of TaxCloud get subsidized for me?

Orders in your TaxCloud account from SST member states do not count toward the plan allotment, provided the merchant is on a Premium Plan, enrolled in SST for the member states, and has no physical nexus in the member states. Moreover, the standard filing fee will not apply to filings TaxCloud submits to SST member states where the seller meets eligibility requirements.

Seller’s are not eligible to have the CSP services subsidized by the SST program in states where:

  • The base of operations, place where seller services are directed or controlled, or
  • the individual’s residence is in the SST member state

In other words, for SST member states where a business has physical nexus, the SST program will not cover the costs of the CSP services for that state(s) and those ineligible CSP services will be covered by the seller. In these instances, filing in member states is $30/return and orders with a product destination in these states will count towards your TaxCloud plan allotment or costs.
