Marketplace Fairness Act: TTR Provides Uniform Sales & Use Tax Matrix Solution for All States




MCMINNVILLE, OR — (Marketwired) — 06/04/13 — TTR, the industry leader in providing accurate, current, supported and easy to find sales and use tax answers, has just released the first ever Uniform Sales & Use Tax Matrix (“UTM”). Now, and for the first time, any professional may download a Uniform Sales & Use Tax Matrix for any and all states.

The Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 requires, in part, that certain states provide “information indicating the taxability of products and services along with any product and service exemption from sales and use tax in the State.” TTR-s Uniform Tax Matrix is the answer to this requirement.

TTR is already working with several state tax agencies toward the larger goal of simplifying sales and use tax answers nationally. With input from state tax agencies and corporate clients, TTR created a Uniform Tax Matrix (“UTM”). TTR started with a list of common products and services across several industries. Then TTR reviewed every Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement Tax Matrix. TTR then created a Uniform Tax Matrix, containing a standard list of products and services with associated taxability along with specific exemptions from sales and use tax in each state.

TTR-s Uniform Tax Matrix is just a small piece of TTR-s website. The Uniform Tax Matrix contains just under 350 products and services spanning multiple industries.

This is a fraction of the full TTR website.

TTR currently has thousands of products and services covering over 5 million sales and use tax answers across over 20 industries in all states.

All states are now available. Please visit TTR at and take a look for yourself. Visit the “RESOURCES” page located at to access a Free Uniform Sales & Use Tax Matrix for every state.

TTR (Transaction Tax Resources, Inc.) is the industry leader in providing accurate, current, supported and easy to find sales and use tax ANSWERS. Headquartered in McMinnville, Oregon, TTR maintains tax answers for over 5 million products and services. TTR created the first ever online solution for finding sales and use tax ANSWERS.

  1. Do you think turning businesses into tax collectors is good for commerce? It’s anti-commerce? It’s not simply collecting one tax rate for one state, it is 45 possible rates for 45 possible states. Then, within each of those states there are different categorization of products in order to understand if that product is taxed or not taxed, and so on. (e.g. is a belt an accessory or clothing and does Harris County–where the purchaser is shipping the belt, NOT where the customer lives–on tax holiday.)

    Additionally, there are privacy concerns. Every single purchase is categorized and attributed to an address and shared with private organizations (SSTGB, Inc. and CSPs) as well as all the states to keep…creating an NSA-like consumer profile…unintended or not.

    Plus, I don’t know how one can argue it’s good for American business when it does not require foreign business to collect this tax, file tax returns to every state, every month, or be subjected to onerous/expensive/paralyzing audits by 45 states.

    It’s also a new tax for sales tax free states as they have to collect it now, and charge tax to residents if they wish to mail products elsewhere.

    Compliance will be a nightmare, integrating govt mandated software w/o free support and requiring APIs from multiple states will be totally impossible, and prepping data in a new way for this unwanted software will create so many errors for business (and costs) it makes this legislation a tax trap! (Auditing wagons and services are already gathering their wagons, muskets and cannons. Using your misplaced Tea Party reference.)

    This is not a partisan issue. It’s a information one. If you look beyond the surface you can’t deny that the Marketplace Fairness Act is a monstrosity. Meaning well (maybe), doing well (no), having far reaching effects, snowballing each year (yes).

    See the eMainStreet Alliance video series on MFA on Youtube. It will wisen you up.
