Project Mission

The Streamlined Sales Tax Project will develop measures to design, test and implement a sales and use tax system that radically simplifies sales and use taxes.

Executive Summary
January 2005

The Streamlined Sales Tax Project is an effort created by state governments, with input from local governments and the private sector, to simplify and modernize sales and use tax collection and administration. The Project’s proposals include tax law simplifications, more efficient administrative procedures, and emerging technologies to substantially reduce the burden of tax collection. The Project’s proposals are focused on improving sales and use tax administration systems for both Main Street and remote sellers for all types of commerce.

Forty-two states and the District of Columbia are involved in the Project. Forty-five states and the District of Columbia impose a sales and use tax.

The Project was organized in March 2000. The Project is conducting its work through a steering committee with co-chairs, and a number of work groups. Project participants are generally state revenue department administrators but there are also representatives of state legislatures and local governments. Businesses ? including national retailers, trade associations, manufacturers, direct marketers, telecommunications companies, leasing companies, technology companies, printers, accounting firms, and others have actively participated in the Project by offering expertise and input, reviewing proposals, suggesting language, and testifying at public hearings
