On May 30, 2018, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed Senate File 2417 (SF 2417), an extensive state tax reform bill to improve the tax structure in Iowa. This law modernizes and expands the types of businesses required to collect Iowa sales tax and local option sales tax. Specifically, marketplace facilitators and remote sellers that exceed a certain amount of revenue or transactions must charge Iowa sales tax and applicable local option sales tax the same as retailers with a physical presence in Iowa. The 2019 legislature modified those new requirements.
Effective July 1, 2019
Marketplace facilitators must begin collecting Iowa sales tax and applicable local option sales tax on January 1, 2019 if the marketplace facilitator made or facilitated Iowa sales of tangible personal property, services, or specified digital products into Iowa equal to or exceeding $100,000 in calendar year 2018.
