Rauschenberger: Remote Seller Sales Tax Collections Exceed $5 Million

BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger today announced that as of January 31, 2019, remote seller sales tax collections have exceeded $5 million.

“Since the South Dakota v. Wayfair U.S. Supreme Court ruling on June 21, 2018, our office has registered more than 2,500 remote sellers to collect North Dakota sales tax,” Rauschenberger stated. “This amounts to more than $5 million in remote seller sales tax collections, most of which came in during the fourth quarter.”

In North Dakota, remote sellers were required to begin collecting sales tax on or before October 1, 2018.

Rauschenberger added that approximately $1.2 million of the total collected is in the form of local city and county sales taxes. Of the 151 cities and counties that had remote seller sales tax reported from June 21 to January 31, 2019, the highest local sales tax collections were seen in Fargo, Grand Forks, Minot, Cass County and Bismarck. The complete Remote Seller Local Sales Tax Collection Report from June 21, 2018 to January 31, 2019, can be found online at www.nd.gov/tax/salesanduse/pubs.  

“Remote seller sales tax collections are on track to meet our revenue forecast,” Rauschenberger said. “For the 2019-2021 biennium, we forecasted that we’d collect $25 million in remote seller sales tax: $10 million for the first year and $15 million for the second year.”

The 2017 North Dakota Legislature passed a law that included a small seller exception to relieve collection burdens on small businesses. Remote sellers are only required to collect North Dakota sales tax if their taxable sales shipped to North Dakota meet or exceed $100,000 or 200 separate transactions in the previous calendar year.

Rauschenberger said that compliance efforts are ongoing to ensure that remote sellers are complying with North Dakota law.
