Sales Tax Assistance For Small Bus
The act permits a retailer with total taxable sales in the amount of $100,000 or less for any filing period to retain 5.3% of the sales tax reported as compensation for the retailer's expenses incurred in collecting and remitting the tax (vendor fee) for sales made in 2023, rather than retaining a 4% vendor fee, which is what current law allows. The act also clarifies that the calculation of the amount that is credited to the housing development grant fund is only based on the changes to the vendor fee from House Bill 19-1245, and not on any subsequent modifications, including the changes made in the act. The act allows the executive director of the department of revenue to deduct processing costs from the electronic payment of taxes and fees in lieu of imposing a convenience fee.
