Texas and Streamlined Sales Tax

Streamlined Sales Tax is a multi-state effort by state governments, local governments and the private sector, to unify sales and use tax collection and administration across state lines by establishing common definitions and collection and reporting requirements. There are 24 member states, including Oklahoma and Arkansas. Sellers doing business in the member states can register for the collection and remittance of sales and use tax through the Streamlined Sales Tax Registration System. The member states offer amnesty to sellers for uncollected or unpaid sales or use taxes.

Currently Texas is not a member of Streamlined Sales Tax. To register to collect Texas sales and use taxes, complete the online registration or download an application. Texas has its own voluntary disclosure program, for more information see Publication 96-576.
