What is the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP)?
Streamlined Sales Tax is a national effort by state and local governments and the private sector to simplify and modernize sales and use tax collection and administration. This national effort produced the “Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement.” The mission of the Streamlined Sales Tax Project is to develop measures to design, test, and implement a sales and use tax system that radically simplifies sales and use taxes. The purpose is to establish uniform sales and use tax standards, modernize sale and use tax laws, and make the burden of compliance the same for all sellers and all types of commerce. The SSTP agreement is focused on improving sales and use tax administration for both local businesses and remote sellers for all types of commerce. The Project is created and comprised of participating governments of most of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
