National Streamlined Sales Tax Program Administrator Presents to House Committee

May 19, 2019

Last week, Craig Johnson, Executive Director of the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board, was in Lansing to explain what the Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement, which Michigan entered into in 2005, means to our state and to the businesses that sell products here.

The Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board was created to simplify and modernize sales and use tax administration in order to substantially reduce the burden of tax compliance. Michigan is one of 24 states that have adopted the simplification measures in the SST Agreement. 

Since the agreement became effective, the Governing Board has registered over 6,200 sellers and collected more than $4 billion in tax dollars that would have otherwise gone uncollected across the 24 member states.
