Texas Sales Tax on eCommerce Merchants

November 9, 2010

Recent changes to sales tax rules in Texas may require ecommerce merchants using a server located in Texas to collect tax on sales made to customers in Texas.

How do the changes to Texas sales tax rules affect my business

Here is a great article from "eCommerce Times" about the new Texas Sales Tax rule that says if you have or use a server in Texas it means you have a "presence" there and now should collect sales tax.

For information about the new tax rule in Texas, please see the Texas Administrative Code, RULE §3.286, "Seller's and Purchaser's Responsibilities, including Nexus, Permits, Returns and Reporting Periods, Collection and Exemption Rules, and Criminal Penalties."$ext.TacPage?sl=R&app=9&p_dir=&p_rloc=&p_tloc=&p_ploc=&pg=1&p_tac=&ti=34&pt=1&ch=3&rl=286

New Meters Goin in on 22nd Street - San Francisco Mission

November 2nd, 2010
Another meter change just a few years after putting in the digital meters. This area is near the City College Mission Campus so they can take advantage of the adjustable rates when students try to park for class. (They rebuilt and expanded that campus with limited additional parking for students or teachers. Small underground garage for Handicap parking and some staff parking.)

This is on 22nd Street, near the Popeyes Chicken. 

The logo on the truck is Street  parking meter company StreetSmart Technology LLC.
