Why is Submittable collecting sales tax?

As a result of the 2018 ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, a landmark sales and use tax nexus case which changed the rules on physical and economic nexus, effective September 1, 2021, Submittable will collect sales and use tax when applicable.

In 2021, Submittable completed a nexus study with a financial service firm specializing in sales and use tax. This study identified which of our products and services are considered taxable in each state. In order to best support our clients, we are auditing customer information in our internal systems to ensure we have current and accurate information going into the new year.

What is the impact on tax-exempt or self-remitting organizations?

If your company is tax-exempt or self-remits sales tax, we need a copy of your Uniform Sales & Use Tax Resale Certificate Multijurisdiction Form. 

Please note that failure to provide this documentation may result in being charged sales tax.

What if my state doesn't have sales tax?

If your state doesn't have sales tax, you will not be charged sales tax and may disregard any communication you may have received on the topic.
