The system is a quick and easy way for sellers to register and update sales and use tax information for all members and selected associate states (those selected by the seller) at one time and place. The use of the system will register a seller in each of the member states and those associate member states chosen by the seller. Once registered the seller must collect and remit sales and use taxes for all taxable sales into the member states, and those chosen associate member states. This requirement includes all the states that become member states after the seller's registration. The system provides one identification number to be used to file and pay taxes for all registered states as well as the ability to update registration data with all registered states at one time and place.
