Wyoming Conformity Legislation Passes House.

The Wyoming House of Representatives passed legislation to complete the state’s conformity with the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement on January 18, 2005. This legislation is intended to account for shortcomings discovered during a compliance review of Wyoming’s previously enacted legislation. If enacted, this legislation will implement a twelve month amnesty period for vendors who voluntarily collect and remit sales and use tax in accordance with the Agreement. It will also provide for a monetary grant to certified service providers who use any approved technology model to collect sales and use tax as required by the Agreement. The legislation further provides new definitions, exemptions, and compliance collection procedures, among other things. (H.B. 14, passed House as noted above)
