On July 21, 2018, Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed legislation containing economic nexus provisions. Effective January 1, 2019, a seller is required to pay or collect and remit Utah sales and use tax if the seller sells tangible personal property, products transferred electronically, or services for storage, use, or consumption in the state; and in either the previous calendar year or the current calendar year:
Whether a remote seller exceeds the $100,000 or 200 transactions, sales made through a marketplace facilitator who is collecting tax are excluded.
The legislation notes that sellers not meeting these requirements may voluntarily collect and remit Utah sales and use tax. In exchange for the expanded nexus provisions, exemptions were broadened for manufacturing, mining, web search portals and medical labs. (Utah S.B. 2001, Sec 59-12-107, effective January 1, 2019)
