Sales & Use Tax for Remote Sellers

On June 21, 2018, in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a remote seller may be required to collect and remit Sales and Use Taxes in states where they meet certain economic thresholds.

South Carolina remote seller criteria and requirements:

  • A remote seller is an out-of-state retailer that has no physical presence in South Carolina.
  • Remote sellers whose gross revenue from sales and services delivered into South Carolina exceeds $100,000 in the previous or current calendar year have established economic nexus in South Carolina. These business are required to register with the SCDOR and begin collecting and remitting Sales and Use Tax by the first day of the second calendar month after economic nexus is established.
