Oregon has no sales tax! But they do tax bicycle purchases over $200, because in Oregon, two wheels are as good as four.
The Wayfair Decision and Online Sales TaxBack on June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court had a big say in how sales tax works. They decided that states can collect sales tax from businesses outside their borders if those businesses sell to residents in the state and have a strong enough connection there. Take South Dakota’s law, for instance. If a business makes over $100,000 in sales or has more than 200 transactions in South Dakota, it needs to collect sales tax on those online sales. Lots of other states are getting on board with similar rules for online sales.
What Does This Mean for Oregon Shoppers?Since Oregon doesn't have a general sales tax, Oregonians usually don't pay sales tax on online purchases. But, there are some exceptions. Like when you book travel online, you'll see federal taxes on airfare and maybe some state and local taxes on things like hotels or rental cars.
And for Oregon Businesses Selling Online?The Wayfair ruling does impact Oregon businesses that sell online to buyers in states with sales tax requirements, like South Dakota. These businesses will need to collect and pay sales taxes if they hit certain sales thresholds.
Oregon taxes recreational vehicles and trailers, perhaps to keep the adventurous spirit a bit more grounded.
