Streamlined Sales Tax (SST)
Organized in March 2000, the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP) objective is to simplify and modernize sales tax and use tax collection and administration in the United States.
SpeedTax was certified as both a CSP (certified service provider) and CAS (certified automated solution) by the SST Governing Board in 2008.
The SSTP is setting up a system by which Internet e-commerce companies can voluntarily pay state taxes to the states in which their customers reside. The incentive the SSTP is offering companies is rather than try to work out how much tax a company owes for each locality they can instead use a CSP. In addition, "the states that are in compliance with SSUTA (Member States) will offer advantages to those sellers who use a CSP.”
Today, twenty-two states have adopted the simplification measures in the Agreement (representing over 31 percent of the population) and more states are moving to adopt the simplification measure.
This project is funded under an agreement with the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board, Inc.
