This week, Etsy updated the list of states for which the marketplace is required to collect sales tax on behalf of sellers. The reason Etsy has to collect the tax is that these states passed so-called Marketplace Facilitator Sales Tax Laws.
These laws make marketplaces responsible for the collection of the sales tax on purchases made by buyers on the platform.
However, sellers can still be individually responsible for collecting sales tax in other states. Please see our State Sales Tax Guide for more information.
