The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) announced this week that, starting April 1, 2019, out-of-state retailers whose sales for delivery into California exceed $100,000 or 200 deliveries will be required to register with California and collect and pay over sales tax. Businesses that meet these thresholds for a single local jurisdiction will also need to collect and pay over that district’s use tax, in addition to the state tax.
The good news is, there will be no retroactive application of tax to sales made prior to April 1, 2019.
