The largest online retail business in the United States has entered into a voluntary collection agreement with the State of Wyoming.
Amazon will begin collecting tax on its sales to Wyoming consumers and businesses beginning March 1st of 2017.
The news comes at a time when Wyoming is facing an historic budget crisis.
Dan Noble with the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board, spoke to a Wyoming State Legislative Committee on Friday and used the announcement to lobby for the passage of Remote Sales Tax Legislation.
According to Noble, Amazon collects sales tax resulting from online transactions in 34 other states and the District of Columbia.
