Who is obliged to register sales tax:
An out-of-state vendor making sales into the State must register and collect sales tax if they made sales of at least $100,000 or 200 individual transactions during any preceding twelve-month period.
Once the threshold is exceeded, you must register and start collecting tax within 30 days.
– 200 individual transactions
The special rules are applicable for the SAAS business.
Remote sellers are required to register to collect and remit Vermont sales tax, provided they meet the threshold, unless the marketplace is collecting and remitting Vermont sales tax on their behalf.
Taxpayers can use myVTax to register for the first time with the Department of Taxes.
