Massachusetts recently released a directive setting out a bright line rule for applying sales and use tax to out-of-state internet vendors.

Beginning July 1, 2017, an internet vendor with a principal place of business outside the state will be required to register, collect, and pay sales and use tax on its Massachusetts sales if in the preceding year it (1) had more than $500,000 in Massachusetts sales and (2) made more than 100 sales for delivery into Massachusetts.

For a six-month period - July 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 - the rule will apply based on the preceding twelve months - July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. For each calendar year beginning with 2018, the rule will apply based on the preceding calendar year.
