The SSUTA prohibits a member state from sharing or granting access to an associate member state any seller information from the seller's registration. Additionally, neither the Governing Board nor a member state may share or grant access to any seller information to an associate member state from an audit conducted by the Governing Board or a member state on behalf of the Governing Board unless the associate member state is a party to the audit. However, the SSUTA states that a seller may, but is not required to, collect sales or use tax on sales into an associate member state unless the seller is otherwise required to collect such taxes under applicable law. A seller that volunteers to collect tax in an associate member state is not required to collect tax in all associate member states. The table below shows voluntary collections for associate member states for the one year period October 1, 2006 through September 30, 2007.
