Wyoming Senate Passes Bill Authorizing Tax Collection by Marketplace Facilitators

The Wyoming Senate has passed a bill that would require marketplace facilitators to collect sales tax.

Marketplace Facilitators

Marketplace facilitators would collect and remit sales tax on sales made on its own behalf and on behalf of marketplace sellers to customers in Wyoming, regardless of whether the marketplace seller has a Wyoming sales tax permit. A “marketplace facilitator” is any person that facilitates a sale of tangible personal property, services, or admissions for a marketplace seller by collecting payment from a purchaser and transmitting the payment to the seller, regardless of whether the person receives compensation for facilitating the sale.

The current version of the bill can be viewed on the Wyoming legislature’s website at https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2019/HB0069.

H.B. 69, passed by the Wyoming Senate on February 12, 2019
