Governor Mead Signs Online Sales Tax Bill
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming officials hope more online businesses will begin to pay sales taxes voluntarily but are laying the groundwork to collect from those that refuse.
Gov. Matt Mead signed a bill Wednesday that says anybody outside Wyoming who does more than 200 transactions or $100,000 in sales in the state annually must pay sales tax.
The bill says the Wyoming Department of Revenue can take those who don't pay to court.
Mead signed the bill on the day that online retail giant Amazon has promised it would begin voluntarily collecting sales taxes on sales in Wyoming.
