Amazon to Begin Collecting Wyoming Sales Tax on March 1, 2017 has entered into a voluntary sales tax collection agreement with the state of Wyoming. Amazon will begin collecting Wyoming sales tax on its sales to Wyoming consumers and businesses beginning March 1, 2017. This does not necessarily mean that all sellers that sell on the Amazon platform will begin collecting taxes. The Legislature is considering a remote seller’s bill which would apply to all internet sales. H.B. 19 was introduced December 8, 2016 and passed the House January 17, 2017. This would impose an economic nexus standard and require sellers making more than $100,000 in sales or 200 or more separate transactions in Wyoming to register and collect the sales tax.
