SST Governing Board Approves Origin-Sourcing Amendment

At a meeting on May 23-24, 2012, the Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) Governing Board voted to allow member states to apply origin-based sourcing to intrastate sales and discussed a number of other issues. The board approved an amendment to the SST Agreement that permits states that apply origin-based sourcing to intrastate sales to become full members of the Agreement. The amendment will allow associate members Ohio and Utah to become full member states once they submit applications and are found in compliance. The board plans to meet in June to vote on full membership, which would take effect on October 1, 2012. The board also discussed the status of federal remote-seller legislation and a number of other issues, rules, and amendments to the Agreement.
