According to a statement issued by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation in response to the Wayfairdecision, the state feels it is too early to understand the full impact of the ruling and an internal working group has been formed to assess the possible implications.
Rhode Island already has legislation in place which states a remote retailer is required to collect and remit sales tax to Rhode Island if they have:
200 or more annual sales transactions; or
$100,000 or more in annual gross receipts from sales into the state.
In addition, for non-collecting retailers, this legislation requires notification to consumers that sales or use tax is due on taxable purchases.
The Rhode Island Division of Taxation also issued an advisory reminding remote sellers of their registration options.
