Nevada Reaches Collection Agreement with Amazon

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval announced that the state has reached an agreement with Amazon to begin collecting Nevada sales tax on purchases and to work together to enact federal legislation that would create a simplified framework for sales tax collection. According to the agreement, Amazon will begin to collect and remit Nevada sales tax beginning January 1, 2014, or as of the effective date of said federal legislation, whichever is earlier. Amazon will collect and remit sales and use tax in the same manner as traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. (Press Release, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, April 23, 2012)
