PA Postpones Online Sales Tax Collection

Pennsylvania has postponed imposition of eCommerce sales taxes for companies with no nexus in the state until Sept. 1.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, "Pennsylvania's definition of nexus is broad enough to include not only brick-and-mortar stores, but things like distribution and fulfillment centers, delivery trucks and sales forces."

The newspaper also reports that "In addition to setting the Sept. 1 compliance deadline, Pennsylvania has included a 'use tax' line for the first time in 2011 state tax return forms, to urge consumers who bought items online or out of state, and didn't pay tax, to declare and pay the 6 percent levy when they file their returns."
